Ildiko Nemeth, Artistic Director of New Stage Theatre Company, is bringing her signature blend of multimedia, inventive choreography and striking visual design to the first English-language stage adaptation of "Near to the Wild Heart," the modernist masterpiece by Clarice Lispector (1920-1977). The Brazilian-Jewish novelist is now the object of a long-overdue surge of worldwide literary popularity. "Near to the Wild Heart" (1943), her sensational debut novel, is the story of a woman trapped in a passionless marriage. Rather than a conventional plot, it offers us a woman's inner life that is as clear and lustrous as any in world literature. Nemeth adapts "Near to the Wild Heart" into a multimedia theatre piece that evokes a rich, expansive female interior as it dramatizes the life and passions of the book's heroine. Her playscript employs verbatim excerpts of Alison Entrekin's faithful translation to reflect--as much as possible--the novel's unique voice and literary effect. The book has been adapted to the stage only twice before and both times in French: in Paris in 2007 and in Belgium in 2008.
