SEGAL TALKS with Lucien Zayan and Raja Feather Kelly (NYC)

Join us for a conversation about curating, producing and presenting theatre and performance in the Time of Corona

Thursday 6 May 2021

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presented SEGAL TALKS with Lucien Zayan and Raja Feather Kelly (NYC) livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 6 May 2021 at 9 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 11 a.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 12 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

Lucien Zayan was born in Marseille in 1965 and moved to Paris when he was 19. After different positions in major French cultural institutions such as the Theatre de l’Odeon, Festival d’Art Lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence, Theatre de la Madeleine, Lucien decided to take 3 months break and go to NYC. At the end of his stay, Lucien discovered the 1863 building located at 51 Bergen street and literally falls in love with it. The building itself inspired him to do the project of a multidisciplinary arts space presenting visual art, dance, music, theater, movies and also be the home of 27 resident artists. The Invisible Dog Art Center opened in October 2009. In November 2018, Lucien Zayan discovers another one of his passions: cooking. He created a new space dedicated to food experiences: la Salle A Manger, a contemporary reimagining of an old fashion dining room where he cooks intimate dinners for his selected guests, artists and supporters of the arts. SAM has become the fundraising force behind The Invisible Dog. Zayan lives and works on Bergen street, Brooklyn.

Raja Feather Kelly is the artistic director of New Brooklyn Theatre. In 2009, he founded the dance-theatre-media company the feath3r theory. The two companies merged in 2018. Raja has been awarded a Creative Capital Award (2019), a National Dance Project Production Grant (2019), a Breakout Award from the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation (2018), Dance Magazine's inaugural Harkness Promise Award (2018), the Solange MacArthur Award for New Choreography (2016), and is a three-time Princess Grace Award winner (2017, 2018, 2019). He was born in Fort Hood, Texas and holds a B.A. in Dance and English from Connecticut College.

Lucien's Curry Zucchini

2 zucchinis peeled with some green stripes left
1 cup of heavy cream
3 nice teaspoon of japanese curry (or regular curry)
salt, pepper, olive oil

- Rinse and dry the zucchinis after peeling them
- Slice the zucchinis not too thin
- In wok or a frying pan, warm olive oil on medium heat and add the slices
- Let them cook stirring delicately a few times until they get a bit translucide, soft but not mush
- Dprinkle the curry, stirring again and add the heavy cream
- From then, lower the heat, the cream must simmer never boil, and let the cream thicken until it makes a creamy sauce with a beautiful curry color.
My secret is to turn off the heat when it’s ready and to let them sit for 15mn, time for the spice to exalt
Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper

Serve with butter seared chicken, or just by itself, it’s delicious
Heavy cream can be replaced by soja or tofu cream
