The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte
For Sale: one house, belonging to one René Magritte, surrealist, painter, philosopher, lover, cowboy, tree, and much more. Swim on down to the open house, and enjoy a guided tour of the great man's mind. Run your fingers along the dust of his memories, appraise the net worth of his melancholy heart -- with the aid of his wife, his lover, his wife's lover, his mother, and a fish.
Inspired by the work of the surrealist painter, The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte will feature performance and installation set in an 8 room mansion on Governors Island. An original and mesmerizing experience, The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte is created and directed by Tess Howsam (Secession 2015, Odd.A.See), features a team of eight playwrights, a multi-talented group of actors, and collaborations with other Governors Island resident organizations - Billion Oyster Project & Creative Movement. Exquisite Corpse is happy to hold your hand as you take a dip, then a dive, then a plunge into The Enchanted Realm of, well, you know who.
