Faye Driscoll

Thank You for Coming: Play, Walker Commission

Part of Out There 2017

“Faye Driscoll is a postmillennium, postmodern wild woman. A wild woman with a scrupulous sense of form that she tweaks into eye-opening weirdness. Ferocious, hilarious, and disturbing.” —Village Voice

Following the wildly popular Attendance in February 2016, Bessie Award–winning choreographer/director Faye Driscoll returns with the second part of her Thank You for Coming trilogy. Playful, irreverent, and rigorous, Play focuses on the consumption and fabrication of personal stories that help make our lives coherent. The choreography examines the lingering gaps and glitches (both physically and vocally) between what we say and what we do.

Note: Performance contains adult content and nudity.
