Log-in to Favorite

Laylage Courie, a Brooklyn-based writer and theater-maker, combines extended vocal techniques and disciplined physicality with poetic text to create simple, luminous works of theater. Described by the press as ?truly passionate?, and ?elliptical and poetic?, Courie's work includes surreal cabaret, story-telling with an indie-jazz/rock score, tea parties for voice and debris, and translations of films into words. She has performed all over downtown New York, in Brooklyn, New Orleans, Atlanta, at the 1996 Olympic Arts Festival, the International Festival of Women Playwrights, in video-shorts, bars, cafes, lofts, and old houses.
