Project: HISTORY OF NOW

The stage production "History of Now" will premiere in 2020. The dynamic story will combine stage and screen including flashback scenes and archive film to maximise the potential and intensity of the piece. The production also offers an educational workshop and an outreach program. 

The subtle yet powerful opening is engaging in its thoughtful approach to flicking the switch between darkness and light. Within this busy production, there are stories within stories. Dynamic stage sets and the combination of screen and stage add a powerful creative dimension. Yet throughout, it is the presence of Krystyna Haeutmann, the energetic young girl and the elderly reflective lady play perfectly, two leading characters of the same person playing opposite one another. It is both dynamic and a masterstroke that validates the story and believability of the character which is essential to the telling of this story.

Ms. Haeutmann, now eighty years of age, lives in the same house she moved into on her arrival in the United States in 1951 having spent six years in England, where she was unable to settle. A former teacher of literature, she lives a simple life alone but has never allowed herself to feel lonely. In her opinion; a form of self-pity, unbecoming to the memory and legacy of her younger life and brief forced existence. On reading an advertisement in a national newspaper for German-born survivors of the Holocaust to come forward to record their experiences for future generations and realizing her life is drawing to its natural close, she makes the decision to tell her story and reveal her hidden past. However, history shows a secret of its own.

"They were Jews they deserved to die" Haeutmann otherwise calm and calculated in her words burst forward, spinning the reporter round in her chair. "Is that how he still feels?" A rhetorical question which is not lost in the silence that pursues. Throughout the production, Alex Jayson's use of silence at times is deafening in its dramatic pause. This is illustrated perfectly in a segment of the play that appears during Act Two. Ruben's narrative becomes increasingly more poignant due to the past moments that again reflected darkness and light. Haeutmann’s mood change now shifts the dynamics of the production. The old figure appears detached, as though removed from the present her every word, etched in pain, is a footstep taking her back until there is a sense of her presence on stage waiting. Her words stop. There is a still image, no movement until…The young Krystyna enters on stage. The symmetry between the young and old Haeutmann's synchronized movements are compelling. Although there is little happening, every single tranquil, undisturbed flick of the wrist becomes even more heightened. Jayson’s skillful writing and directing create a moment that is beautiful and touching. It is powerful in its simplicity. Harrowing in its execution. However witnessing silently as they become bound to each other at this moment, that is a methodical sweeping embrace across the years. A light within the shadow.

The play’s greatest strengths are that it has enough confidence in the audience’s intelligence to avoid spelling things out too explicitly. The relationship between the reporter and Haeutmann whose words drive the play forward with a delicate blend of intellectual and visceral overtures reflect her life and experience against the reporter’s innocence correctly. It is a smart blend that allows the writer to confront and challenge key issues that discharge the need to question their place in time.

​​It would be wrong to classify this as just one more Holocaust production. In fact, it is an intelligent and entertaining piece of work that engages on many levels that appeals to young and old across all groups. To see Krystyna - The History of Now as anything less would be like receiving a gift that is so beautifully wrapped that we leave the real gift inside! To fully comprehend Alexander Jayson's latest work we must carefully remove the outer packaging to find the right PRESENT!

Project: The Charmed Life of Fig Dauphine

Set in the world of New Orleans gypsies, a child fortune teller leads her teenage sidekick through escapades involving unruly gangsters and a drag queen known as The Countess, while trying to solve the mystery of her unwitting birth father. 

The film is a buddy movie/comedy/black comedy with some heartfelt light drama. It’s a contemporary setting, with the beauty of a period piece. The charming and funny dialogue, and cast of unique characters will make this a special film. Think of the lovely, French film AMÉLIE.

Brooklyn Filmmakers (Louisiana natives) will be filming the FEATURE FILM in New Orleans the end of May/beginning of June 2019. With a female writer/director, the project will be filmed entirely on an I-PHONE using special lenses (so it will be gorgeous), with a small cast and crew, and will take place primarily in the French Quarter. Some scenes may be filmed in Natchez, Mississippi.

This is a MICRO-BUDGET film. Cast and crew will be given lunch, and paid a very small stipend with the hope that the film will sell. In this case, cast and crew will be paid an agreed upon rate. The film will be submitted to film festivals in 2020.
