Faye Driscoll – Thank You for Coming: Attendance
04/14/2016 - 04/17/2016
8:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“Ms. 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
Choreographer Faye Driscoll’s witty and immensely charming Thank You for Coming: Attendance is designed to draw you ever deeper into its vortex. Performers pass through ever-morphing states of physical entanglement and madcap scenes of distorted familiarity, with Driscoll’s choreography building new bodies, new stories, new ways of reimagining group experience. Staged in the round, the work presents a heightened sense of observation, invitation, and interdependence that is a joy to join in as it unfolds around you.
The first installment in Driscoll’s projected Thank You for Coming trilogy aims to open up new relationships between performers and their audiences. This begins with greeting you in person when you pick up your tickets at our Patron Services Desk and continues in fresh and fun ways throughout the performance. One of the breakout hits of the New York dance season last year. It will leave you “never quite knowing what you’ll encounter, where you’ll end up,” in a dance experience the Brooklyn Rail called “exhilarating, uninhibited, and adventurous.”
