Faye Driscoll

SAT, OCT 29th at 1PM
FREE

Come join the 2010 NY Dance and Performance “Bessie” award winner for a Work in Progress showing of her newest work “Not…Not.”  “Not…Not” uses the archetypal dance form of the male/female duet to explore the poignant tension between fantasy and present tense sensation, seeking to at once satisfy and debunk the duet’s expectations around romance, gender, beauty, sex, partnering, role-play, and autobiography. Performers Faye Driscoll and Jesse Zaritt rapidly slip from recognizable narratives to imagined ones-a couple at a dance club, then imagined beasts, then “original” man and woman in the seductive Contrapposto of a renaissance painting-in an effort to transform the logic of fixed identities. “Not…Not” has been commissioned by the Kitchen where it will premier in April 2012.
