Luke Murphy - Attic Projects & FailSafe Festival

Award-winning Irish choreographer Luke Murphy (“Sleep No More” original cast member: Boston, New York, Shanghai) returns to NYC this November 9th and 10th with “The Milkyboy Kid”, a new one-man show on the chameleon nature of performers and performance, and Murphy's own blurred lines of fiction and reality.

Through a mixture of storytelling, film and Murphy's own virtuosic physicality “The Milkyboy Kid” examines relationships between who you are, who you want to be and who you pretend to be. Maybe "the body never lies" (Martha Graham) but then again "if you can fake sincerity, you've got it made" (Groucho Marx).  Maybe the fiction is all there is.

"Anyone who has seen him can testify: Murphy's svelte and humble demeanour can instantly give way to warrior-like choreography... his self-examinations are best present in his explosive body" - broadwayworld.com

“The Milkyboy Kid” is presented in partnership with FailSafe Festival. Supported by the Guest Artist program of The Performance Project @ University Settlement.
