CAKE at Chez Bushwick: Ben Evans futureLOVER
Saturday, August 22, 2009
7:30pm – 8:30pm
304 Boerum St., Buzzer #11
futureLOVER is a performance about the exploration of a modern man : fragile, vulgar, nostalgic. It is a dance of objects and memory, confession and solitude…events in search of masculine codes that are rarely found.
Ben Evans makes performance in the U.S. and France, where he currently resides. His last project, je t’aimerai toujours, took place in his apartment in Paris every month for eight months. His work with madhause in the U.S. has been seen in Boulder, Chicago, and Los Angeles. He completed the Laboratory of Movement Studies at the Jacques Lecoq School, and has worked and studied with Goat Island, Anne Bogart and the SITI Company, Moving Theater, dreamthinkspeak (Barbican, London), Mary Overlie and Terry O’Riley, and Ettumanoor P. Kannan (Kerala, India). He graduated from Yale University, and is currently pursuing a Masters in Performance Practice at Paris VIII. He will be working with Deborah Hay as part of the Solo Commissioning Performance Project in the fall of 2009.
