Thank You For Coming, Part 3

Brooklyn-based choreographer Faye Driscoll is interested in excess, emotionality, and the messier aspects of what it means to be human. In her hyper-theatrical and subversively intimate trilogy "Thank You For Coming", performers and audience members come together in a shared space of culpability and care. While at Camargo, Driscoll will begin creating the third piece in this projected trilogy that proposes performance as shared political act, where performer and audience co-create reality. Driscoll’s work consists of rigorously crafted group experiences that come off as improvised, chaotic, and spontaneous.
