Still Life

Still LifeAcademy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (BIRDMAN), and Broadway playwright (ON YOUR FEET), examines the causal link between ethics and success, life and death, art and redemption. How do we endure loss and rediscover the will to make something of our lives?



Living at an emotional crossroads, with her career on the rise, celebrated photographer Carrie Ann scrambles to reconnect with her passion for the work. An unexpected inspiration arrives in the form of a trend analyst who becomes determined to help her move forward, even while facing his own uncertain future.

"I am a true agnostic, in that I am not certain of what my existence was before the moment I was born, and I don’t know what it will be after the moment I die. Like the characters in STILL LIFE we are all trying to figure it all out, trying to learn as best we can how we can go on. This, for me, is one of the reasons why I do theatre, and particularly a play like STILL LIFE” - Michael Peretzian Director

Alexander Dinelaris is a playwright whose work Red Dog Howls was nominated for several Los Angeles Ovation Awards, including Best Actress in a Play Kathleen Chalfant. He won an Oscar for co-writing the film Birdman, and his current project On Your Feet, is now running on Broadway. Other works include Folding the Monster, The Chaos Theories (dir. Alison Fraser), Big Kids, Pathetique, and American Rapture.
