Juliette Binoche Takes Center Stage

FRENCH actress Juliette Binoche will come to Shanghai to perform on the stage of the Shanghai Oriental Art Center on March 27 and 28.

The performance, entitled "In-I," will combine various disciplines such as mime, comedy, dance, song and the spoken word.

The performance premiered in London last year, but this is the first time the 44-year-old actress has appeared on stage in Shanghai.

"It's classical dance combined with modern dance, film and opera," says Binoche. "'In-I' asks, what is love? Love should be an adventure in our hearts."

The performance is co-directed by Binoche and Akram Khan, a leading London-based dancer and choreographer. Sculptor Anish Kapoor will design the sets.

Binoche first attracted attention when she appeared alongside Daniel Day-Lewis in "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" (1988) at the age of 23.

She is known worldwide for her roles in films such as "Three Colors: Blue" (1993), "Chocolate" (2000) and "Hidden" (2005).

Binoche was the second French actress to win an Oscar, being honored by the Academy as Best Supporting Actress in 1997 for her role in "The English Patient."

Binoche has also published a book of poetry, featuring her own illustrations, and exhibited her paintings in Paris.
