Woman in the Blue Dress is a multi-media theatre work that brings to life Henriette Henriot, a fledgling actress at the Théâtre de L’Odéon in Paris, and model for artist Pierre-August Renoir’s La Parisienne. In the work, Henriette shares her provocative story of life in the theatre, her experience in the Parisian art world of the 1870s, and what it was like to model for Renoir, the most shocking Impressionist painter of his day.

This original 30-minute piece by Syracuse Stage’s Director of Educational Programming Lauren Unbekant is presented in association with the Everson's exhibit Turner to Cézanne: Masterpieces from the Davies Collection, National Museum Wales. It has been made possible in part by a grant from the Chancellor Leadership Project of Syracuse University in conjunction with Imagining America.

“I thought it would be interesting to explore who this woman was, and to look at visual art from a theatrical point of view. Theatre and Impressionism are alike—they require that viewers bring their own perspective to the work. My intention with Woman in the Blue Dress was to mirror the breakthrough innovations of the Impressionism movement.” - Lauren Unbekant, Playwright
