Writer, choreographer, and director Jack Ferver and visual artist Marc Swanson take Jean Genet’s The Maids as a point of departure for a farcical attack on our culture of celebrity and greed. Chambre refracts Genet through many lenses, including the gruesome facts of the real-life murders that inspired The Maids; Lady Gaga’s infamous courtroom deposition speech; role-play; and a manic fantasy escape to the City of Lights. Swanson’s mythic and evocative sculptures—on view as an installation during museum hours—function as both freestanding art and a theatrical set. Ferver is joined by Jacob Slominski and Michelle Mola in an exquisitely outrageous performance that asks not how such a violent thing could have happened, but why things like this don't happen more often.
