Thank You For Coming: Space (Live Artery)

 

Presenters RSVP here.

Faye Driscoll’s celebrated Thank You For Coming series, Space unfolds within an intimate installation, wired for sound and upheld by pulleys, ropes, and the weights of others, January 8-11 Through an alchemy of body, object, voice and live sound, Driscoll builds a moving requiem for the human body and conjures a world that is, like ourselves, alive and forever changeable. Space becomes a site to collectively confront life’s final flourishing, and tethers us to our potential for both the grotesque and the sublime.

Space is the final performance in Faye Driscoll’s celebrated Thank You For Coming series, which includes the earlier works, Play and Attendance. Each piece extends the sphere of influence of performance to create a communal space where our shared experiences are palpable, heightened and questioned.

Mellon Foundation and the William and Nadine McGuire Commissioning Fund; and Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University through the Wexner Center Residency Award Program.
