FRENCH CANCAN (U) MALVERN FRENCH FILM CENTRE @ The Coach House Theatre
Jun 12 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

 

Director: Jean Renoir (son of Pierre-Auguste Renoir)

It’s 1890 and Henri Danglard, proprietor of the fashionable (but bankrupt) café ‘Le Paravent Chinois’ featuring his mistress, belly-dancer Lola, goes slumming in Montmartre, where the then old-fashioned cancan is still danced. There he conceives the idea of reviving the cancan as the feature of a new, more popular establishment and meets Nini, a laundress and natural dancer whom he hopes to make the star of his new show. But a tangled maze of jealousies intervenes.

1955 (U) – colour 102 mins (comedy/drama) 

Grand Prix de l’Academie du Cinéma – 1956

DANCING AT LUGHNASA

By Brian Friel

Dancing at Lughnasa, set in the summer of 1936 Ireland was hailed  by Time magazine as “the most elegant and rueful memory play since The Glass Menagerie”. The story of five sisters, living a fragile life in rural Ireland, is told through flashbacks of one of the sisters’ illegitimate son, Michael. Though the sisters’ tragic fates are revealed through Michael’s memories of that summer when he was only seven, the play is lightened by their mutual love and support, shared humour and moments of wild abandon when their erratically functioning radio fills the house with a cocktail of 1930s song and dance together with Irish traditional music. This almost carefree, yet precarious, world is disturbed with the homecoming of their long-lost brother Jack, who has “gone native” after years of missionary work in Uganda. To add to the turmoil, Gerry, Michael’s adventurer father pays one of his infrequent visits and the impact of Lughnasa, the Pagan Harvest Festival, looms large on the horizon.

Dancing at Lughnasa is a play about love and loss and family set against a background of strict Catholicism and Paganism.
