The French Institute Alliance Française’s seventh annual fall festival brings an intriguing offering of theater, dance, art and talks to the institution's home base and to sites across New York. Much of the program invites public participation, notably Capitalism Works for Me! (True/False) by Steve Lambert. The piece will erect an illuminated sign in Times Square (Sept 20, Oct 6–9) and ask passersby to vote on the statement. In Spokaoke, Passing Strange director Annie Dorsen has added a playlist of speeches—ranging from MLK Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" to "Should All Oppressed People Be Allowed Refuge in America?" from the film Clueless—to the offerings in Karaoke Cave (Sept 21–Oct 13).
