WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In Ruff, her latest solo show, Peggy Shaw throws off the stigma of age and embraces the joy--and necessity--of creating new work since her stroke in 2011. She unashamedly exposes the emotional and technological accommodations she now requires to perform onstage. In so doing, she offers a rare glimpse at the art of aging. "Ruff" comes to La MaMa following a critically acclaimed run at the 2013 Coil Festival and an extremely popular European tour.
