Harlem Quartet performed in French with English subtitles
Hall Montana remembers, recounts and retraces the life of his family and friends, who are part of Harlem’s African-American community in the 1950s and 1960s. Baldwin’s sensual writing style is punctuated by poignant gospel lyrics that take audiences to the heart of Harlem, a world of love, religious fervor and suffering.
Harlem Quartet is a story on human destiny based on the novel Just Above My Head by James Baldwin. Adapted and directed by Élise Vigier in collaboration with Kevin Keiss, with original music by Saul Williams. This critically acclaimed show from the 2017-18 French theatrical season stands out with a rare all-black cast, unusual for a production in France.
