Who is more dead and alive than Elvis Presley? What sustains his image post-mortem? Morgan Thorson dazzles the stage with this sublime dance performance for seven commissioned by the Walker Art Center and Southern Theater in Minneapolis. Packed with astonishing performances, Faker's exploration of impersonation, obsession and ritualistic behavior exposes contemporary culture's fixation with celebrity vs. authenticity, and elevating vs. degrading entertainment of all kinds. Faker blurs the lines between behavior and dance, body and image, flattery and stealing.
