Famous for capturing female dancers and playing with unusual angles, Edgar Degas influenced several major modern artists, including Picasso. Now, Commedia Beauregard calls upon the Parisian painter to inspire six new plays which translate his works to the stage.
Six award-winning playwrights and six amazing local directors compete for the awards of “Best Translation” and “Audience Favorite”!
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
