Friday and Saturday at 10:00 pm

Theatre Du Jour brings unbridled spectacle to the small stage with Antonin Artaudís 1947 radio play, To Have Done with The Judgement Of God. Written and produced for French Radio, the cacophonous rant against government and religion was shelved until after Artaudís death. Using the play as a roadmap, this production utilizes sound, imagery, projections, and music to explore the authorís conviction of the futility of manís relation to government, nature, God and his body. Profane and irreverent, profound and funny, this performance fuels the debate of whether Artaud was a visionary or a madman, sublime or insane.

Featuring Rachel Reed, Jerry Herbilla, Jacquelyn Paulin, and Annetta Dexter Sawyer. Soundscapes by Nate Taylor and Rob Gould. Sculptural costumes by Stephanie Williams.

Directed by B. Stanley
