Give Paris one more chance

A humorous and magical landscape of cross-cultural interactions, misunderstandings, and revelations is at the heart of “Ex.Pgirl’s Paris Syndrome,” a dance theatre piece that will be performed as a work-in-progress at New York City College of Technology.

The show is a dance theater piece about a Japanese phenomenon that occurs when tourists visit Paris and experience a psychological meltdown because Paris, the “City of Love,” does not match their idealized expectations of beauty. The only permanent cure is to go back to Japan — and never return to Paris.

Through language games, spoken scenes, dance and video interviews, a multicultural ensemble of female performers will explore the themes of madness, ideals and cultural misunderstanding.

New York City College of Technology is located at 186 Jay Street in downtown Brooklyn.

The suggested admission is $5. Performances are March 18-19 at 8 p.m. and March 20 at 2 and 8 p.m.
