MONTCLAIR, NJ: Faye Driscoll presents Thank You For Coming: "Attendance" & "Play"
Peak Performances / Faye Driscoll
Faye Driscoll is an award-winning choreographer and director whose work has been described as “creative, awkward, hilarious, goofy, surprising, rowdy, randy, chaotic, and sweet.” (Berkshire Eagle) Thank You for Coming is her playful, moving, mind-boggling trilogy about “how we are all wrapped up in each other, whether we like it or not.” In October, see the first two parts of the trilogy; then come back in April for the world premiere of the trilogy’s final installation.
In Attendance, six virtuosic performers morph through breathless, surprising physical entanglements and create soaring music from their stomps and voices. In this souped-up flipbook of human emotion, they sing, talk, fight, frolic, and make love. In Play, mouths and bodies say one thing while words say another in a strange and delightful meditation on the glories and limits of language, an experience that adds up to “a fun and unexpectedly moving evening.” (Berkshire Eagle)
