Faye Driscoll: Thank You For Coming: Space

“Utterly original work. It doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever seen before, nor can you imagine thinking it up.”
The New York Times

“No to prettiness, no to glamour, no to glistening muscular limbs. Yes to intensity, yes to body heat, yes to wildness, freedom, and in-your-face defiance.” Dance Magazine

“Driscoll understands that at the heart of live theater are emotional distances (perspective, we might call it if this were a painting). She beams a light on theatrical self-fashioning, and lets you feel the scraps of being fluttering in the dark.”
Arts Journal


Faye Driscoll’s Thank You For Coming: Space is a shared rite of passage—a conjuring of the transformative powers of presence, and of absence. Space unfolds within an intimate installation, wired for sound and upheld by pulleys, ropes, and the weight of others, where Driscoll appears alone with the audience. Through an alchemy of body, object, voice, and live sound, she builds a moving requiem for the human body and conjures a world that is, like ourselves, alive and forever changeable. At the center of the work is the human body—built for action, self contained, and driven by its longing for the felt world. Space speaks in bewilderment. It conjures the inevitable forces of loss and grief and asks: How do I reproduce you, talk about you, now that you are gone?
