Faye Driscoll: Thank You for Coming: Play
  • In Play, Bessie Award-winning director and choreographer Faye Driscoll investigates how we rely on stories to relate to one another and to form identities as individuals and citizens. Conceived as the second in the Thank You for Coming series, which envisions a society where performance is both a collective and a political act, this new work combines stories of the performers and collaborators to create a collective autobiography that is danced, sung, and spoken. The project explores how language can define and reduce our lived experiences, and how we are both organized and undone by our personal and societal narratives in an irreverent and rigorous effort to create new bodies, stories, and forms. Presented by the MCA with the Chicago Humanities Festival. Performances take place in the MCA’s Edlis Neeson Theater.
