Returning Choreographic Fellow, Faye Driscoll has come back to MANCC from February 12 to 19 to further her latest work “Weathering”, a multi-sensory flesh sculpture made of bodies, sounds, scents, liquids and objects. Her first MANCC residency, back in 2011, was for her work “You’re Me”, which premiered at The Kitchen, NYC, in 2012.
MANCC welcomes Driscoll and her fourteen collaborators, consisting of performers, a costume and prop designer, two environment and set designers, a production stage manager, a producer, and an embedded writer through MANCC’s Embedded Writers Program, for Driscoll’s 2023 residency.
While at MANCC, Driscoll’s primary goal is to further her physicalized explorations that manifest the work’s conceptual concerns, meshing movement vocalizations with the mobile stage as integral aspects of the overall work. Driscoll is extensively delving into the production elements such as costumes, props, sounds, vocals and text for Weathering during her residency and has invited several School of Dance students into her rehearsal to assist with the production experimentation.
At 5pm this Saturday, February 18, 2023, Driscoll will conduct an open rehearsal that is open to both the public and FSU School of Dance students in the Black Box at Montgomery Hall. RSVP by Friday, February 17 at 5pm to email@example.com to reserve a seat.
Brooklyn-based dancemaker, performer, writer and long-time collaborator with Driscoll, Jesse Zaritt, is joining Driscoll in residency for three days as part of MANCC’s Embedded Writers Program.
“Weathering” will premiere at New York Live Arts from April 6 to 8 and 13 to 15, 2023.
This residency is supported, in part, by the National Endowment of the Arts.
Embedded writer Jesse Zaritt’s participation is supported, in part, by the Mellon Foundation.
Childcare subsidy to two parent/artist collaborators is supported by the Sustainable Arts Foundation.
