Choreographic Fellow | March 16 – April 1, 2011
While in residence at MANCC, Faye Driscoll, collaborator Jesse Zaritt, and composer Brandon Wolcott with cellist Emil Abramyam researched and began the development of You're Me (formerly titled Not, Not...), a show about the ways we are constantly made-up and un-done by each other.
During her residency Driscoll engaged students, scholars and local musicians as a means of exploring the question, 'What are the mythical, unstable and liberating processes that shake up the notion of self and lead to transformation?' Exploring both the longing to attain a solid person hood as a stable and powerful state and the longing to transcend self completely to become no-thing, someone else or another creature. Driscoll asks, ‘What is the power of real transformation? A snake shedding its skin versus the contemporary botox phenomenon. How do these actions express the same impulse?’
