Versailles 2016. A site-specific experience staged for an audience of twenty in a New York City apartment, Versailles asks its viewers to consider space, gentrification, privilege, and power — all between bites of hors d'oeuvres and a glass of wine. (For the under-21s, there's seltzer.) Hobnobbing with the "ruling class" performers, small groups of audience members visit scenes in different rooms; no one-on-one encounters to panic over here, but there is choreography in a bathtub. Conceived and directed by Erin B. Mee and written by playwrights Jessie Bear and Charles Mee, the hour-long Versailles, which premiered last year, gets a return engagement in downtown-Brooklyn abodes for one weekend each in September and October.
