Peak Performances

The final work in Faye Driscoll’s three-part Thank You For Coming series, Space is an intimate shared performance, and a liberatory ritual that confronts life’s most notable transition. Alone with the audience, Driscoll constructs a temporary world upheld by pulleys, ropes and the weightiness of others, to invoke the sensations of absence. At the center of the work is the human body—built for action, self contained, and driven by its longing for the felt world. Space calls forth new presences and offers an enlivened contemplation of our shared conclusion.

Driscoll’s Thank You For Coming series, extends the sphere of influence of performance, creating a communal space where everything is questioned, heightened, and palpable.

The rehearsal performances on Tuesday, April 9th and Wednesday, April 10th are special opportunities to experience a new work preparing for its premiere on Thursday, April 11th. Throughout Faye’s Driscoll’s Thank You For Coming series, she has crafted experiences that engage with each audience as co-creators of the work. These unique previews are your chance to be part of that process.
