The Alexander Street Chamber Theatre


December 1st, 2009 – December 12th, 2009


Nathalie Claude explores her fascination with turn- of-the-century automatons in this virtuosic solo performance. The Salon Automaton is a literary salon, a burlesque confrontation, an infernal «huis-clos» between a sublime hostess (Nathalie Claude) and her three distinguished guests: The Dandy Poet, The Cabaret Artist and The Drinking Patroness. Three authentic human-size automatons, fill an ultra-modern solitude with their conversation, talent and wit.  (Show Press Release)
