In Order to Sleep Peacefully
a solo show adapted from alfred de musset’s lorenzaccio
A tyrant rules over the city of Florence. A nobleman finds lifeblood in the idea of assassination. In the journey from ideation to action, the killer loses sight of himself. In this queer adaptation of a French classic, one body takes on many. Who’s the real Renzo, and how many masks must one don and discard in order to act?
I’ve been developing this project with director Roxane Revon. We’ll present a workshop of it later in the spring in NYC, and then I’ll perform it at the United Solo Festival in the fall before touring it throughout 2020.
