A SIMPLE HEART, 2004
Adapted from the novella by Gustave Flaubert
A rich visual distillation of the Flaubert classic, A SIMPLE HEART depicts the obscure life of Félicité––a devoted domestic servant who endures the gradual loss of everyone around her––in a tale which resonates with quiet conviction.
“Let aestheticians argue about whether the productions of BIG DANCE THEATER are primarily choreographic or dramatic. What is beyond dispute is that this troupe, directed by Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, is rich in imagination.”
- The New York Times
