This time around, Franco is making his debut as a dance theater director for the upcoming multimedia show ‘Collage,’ reports CNN. First he’s an actor, then Ivy League student, then Oscars host, and now theater director? Impressive!
“‘Collage’ is a mixed-media piece that uses sound and visuals to play with the idea of how different art mediums interact,” producer John Morrow says of the show, which will run at the Stella Adler studios in NYC from May 8 -15. “Using video, dance, poetry, theater and music, we have created a performance that will be an engaging experience for the audience.”
“The piece is so exhilarating because there are no boundaries to what we can create and play with,” says actress Nina Ljeti.
Adds choreographer Chloe Kernaghan, “The overall piece has been a continuous exploration of how using disparate elements can create a cohesive idea.”
Franco will appear live at each performance to narrate the production. This also isn’t the first time Franco has produced a musical number. He recently put on ‘James Franco Presents’ at Yale University, so he has the experience.
Bravo to him. If you have the power to explore different realms, then by all means do it. He’s talented at pretty much everything he does, so I’m sure the play will be a success.
