To Have Done with The Judgement Of God
April 15 - May 7, 2016
Thursdays through Sundays at 7:30 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
