Her quick pirouettes and acrobatic dives are legendary, and her slim, androgynous appearance is always fascinating. She is an icon, a fifty-year-old blonde angel with an aura. The choreographer and performer Benoît Lachambre, who appeared with Meg Stuart in the ‘Forgeries. Love and other matters’, is her sparring partner on stage. In ‘Is you me’, the two partners examine the relationship between image and dance to the live accompaniment of music by the composer Hahn Rowe and computer drawings by Laurent Goldring. In a pristine white landscape, the two dancers...

Fatebook at The 2009 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival

FATEBOOK: Avoiding Catastrophe One Party at a Time Produced and Created by New Paradise Laboratories A performance theatre work presented by the 2009 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival.

First, the characters live in cyberspace. Their lives intersect with each other and with audience members through a variety of social media networks. Then in September, in a real space performance, it all careens toward a momentous night—the FATEBOOK party—where time stops, computers crash, and it’s now or never. And the ghost and the body part ways. And all bets are off. And nobody can say what’s real. An...

A description of the 2008 production of Jerk by Dennis Cooper and directed by the French Artist, Gisèle Vienne.

This show sees David Brooks serving his life sentence. In prison, he learns the art of puppets, which somehow enables him to face up to his responsibility as partner in the crimes.

He performs his show in prison for a class of psychology students from a local university. Due to the violence and humor of t...
