WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Adrienne Truscott has been performing in and creating diverse work in New York City for the last ten years. Truscott's neo-Vaudevillian collaboration with Tanya Gagne, The Wau Wau Sisters, won the Best Cabaret Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004. She is a founding member of the circus-inspired dance company, LAVA. Her choreographic, cabaret, and circus work has been shown internationally. While Truscott's work spans many genres and versions of physicality, it is united by the sometimes awkward belief that most things are funny. ha is an evening in two parts furnished by thoughts about repetition, timing, space, proximity, exaltation, sunglasses, intimacy, intensity, speed, quiet, cliché, the angriest movie in cinema, crumping, booze, camp, explosions, slide whistles, and rim shots. Truscott considers the distinctions between wit, humor, and sadness, and why we often look the same whether we are laughing, bawling, shrieking, drunk, or coming.
