Triskelion Arts is pleased to present "FITTING ROOMS", a new work by choreographer Denisa Musilova, this April in the Muriel Schulman Theater. "FITTING ROOMS" is based on Lacan’s mirror theory and looks at how the act of viewing one’s own image brings an understanding of identity both distinct from others and yet dependent on the images of others in determining itself. This piece takes place within a bare black room and an unseen room behind it. Both rooms are fitting rooms in a sense: The back room, where one goes to undress, to expose oneself; the front room, where we go to fit in. Performers come and go through the back room while constantly breaking a narrative into a string of scenes, with relationships flowing between romantic, familial, and professional. Reality is made and wiped out. "FITTING ROOMS" asks the questions: What is individuality? Who are the selves that we project for others? Who are the selves projected onto us? Are the two rooms fusing or wholly distinct?
"I think Musilova is an emerging choreographer that really has a new voice in this genre. Her work is astoundingly detailed and visionary." - Jacquelyn Claireon, New York Theatre Guide
