Faye Driscoll

Thank You for Coming: Attendance

“Driscoll is fascinating in that she makes such utterly original work. It doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever seen before, nor can you imagine thinking it up.” —New York Times

New York–based choreographer Faye Driscoll takes audiences on a joyous and intriguingly wild ride in the first work of her new trilogy that the Walker will present over the next three years. Thank You for Coming: Attendance is a cleverly crafted and playfully choreographic exploration that softens the lines between spectator and participant with an invitation to the audience to join an impromptu 75-minute community. Presented in an ingeniously immersive setting on the McGuire Theater stage, performers pass through ever-morphing states of physical entanglement and scenes of distorted familiarity, building new bodies, new stories, and new ways of being.
