Watch our ExPats Theatre Zoom reading of scenes from the award-winning play, “The Sculptress” by playwright Marilyn Millstone. The production deals with the life of the extraordinarily gifted artist Camille Claudel, once student and lover of famed French sculptor Auguste Rodin. It starts with Camille as an older woman “imprisoned” in a mental institution where she has spent the last 30 years. She is visited by Spanish painter Remedios Varos who is sent by Camille’s brother Paul and has a plan to get her out. It is an intriguing semi-historical play about the power of friendship, the fine line between eccentricity and madness, and the passions that fuel the creation of great art.
Featuring Laura Candela as Remedios, Sasha Olinick as Paul, and Karin Rosnizeck as Camille, with stage directions by Yvonne Paretzky.
From the 2011 Fells Point Corner Theatre premiere of The Sculptress,
