“A visceral embodiment of grief and loss combined with a fierce proclamation of the ecstasy of living.” —Montclair Local

One of dance/performance’s most astonishing experimental voices, Faye Driscoll wraps up her Walker-supported trilogy—Thank You For Comingwith a moving requiem on art, the body, loss, and human connectivity. Space builds on and diverges from Driscoll’s earlier works, beloved by audiences across the country, with “an exhilaratingly personal culmination of the series” (Artforum). The intimate new performance piece, presented within an immersive installation on the McGuire stage, is informed by art-historical imagery and emerges as a collaborative creation between the artist, her astute design collaborators, and the audience.

Contains mature content. No late seating.

On Thursday, join the artists for a meet and greet in the Cityview Bar after the performance. On Friday, stay for a postshow Q&A with Miriam Felton-Dansky, assistant professor of theater and performance at Bard College.

In conjunction with the performance, Driscoll will extend the conceptual underpinnings of her trilogy to the Walker’s Gallery 7. Faye Driscoll: Come On In (February 27–June 14, 2020), the artist’s first gallery installation, presents an environment that invites and challenges us to become active makers and participants.
