Aurélia's Oratorio

Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter, Aurélia Thierrée's in
Aurélia's Oratorio
Harvard Square
Cambridge, Massachusetts

with shows starting Nov. 28th and into January 3, 2009

"In "Oratorio," which is directed, designed, and choreographed by her mother, the slender and lovely Thierrée showcases her illusionist skills. The piece begins with a simple dresser on a bare stage. As gypsy jazz music swells, her limbs appear and reappear through the drawers in stupefying combinations as she smokes a cigarette and drinks a glass of wine, challenging the audience's notions of logic." - Boston.com

Thierrée wins French Theatre prize. more>
"Swiss acrobat and actor James Thierree, Charlie Chaplin's 34-year-old grandson, has scooped another French theatre prize, the jury said Wednesday.

The 5,000-euro (6,400-US dollar) Theatre Pleasure prize, awarded by the country's playwrights' guild, will be handed to Thierree, a performer of many facets who is also mime artist, dancer, director and musician, at a ceremony January 19.

The son of acrobats Victoria Chaplin and Jean-Baptiste Thierree, the Swiss artist has made a name for himself as one of the world's most creative performers, staging shows that bring together theatre, magic, music and circus arts." - AFP
