Stunning French film star Juliette Binoche is already famous for slinking across the silver screen — but this week, she’ll begin captivating audiences by dancing on a Brooklyn stage.
The actress, beloved by audiences thanks to films like “Chocolat” and “The English Patient,” will perform in “In-I,” a dance piece that she co-directed, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from Sept. 15 to Sept. 26.
Though the Oscar-winning actress isn’t a trained dancer, she’ll perform alongside her co-director and co-star Akram Khan, who plays her lover in a tumultuous affair (of course, it’s dance).
BAM’s Rose Cinema will also showcase her work in her other medium, the movies. Over the next two weeks, moviegoers can catch screenings of more than dozen Binoche films, including “Damage” on Sept. 19, “Flight of the Red Balloon” on Sept. 20, and “Cache” on Sept. 26.
“In-I” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater [651 Fulton St. at Rockwell Place in Fort Greene, (718) 636-4100], Sept. 15, 17–19, 22–26; 7:30 pm, Sept. 16; 7 pm, Sept 20; 3 pm. Tickets $25–$70.
