Live Artery: BOOM!

New York Live Arts Studios
Presenters RSVP Here.

Cynthia Oliver’s BOOM! (excerpt, 2014), is a “shattering [and] universal” (The New Yorker) duet that features Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet as individuals, friends, strangers, family and younger/older versions of themselves, negotiating relations that are persistently in flux. Building upon a non-linear sequence of narratives around a life and a relationship—of a woman to herself, her history, her present and her future—BOOM! is a choreography of shifting realities. It is a looping, fractured unfolding, examining notions of destiny, when life happens and when “fairness” and cause and effect do not necessarily align.
