About this show

Lisa Fay and Jeff Glassman are a composing and performing movement-based theatre duo, working together since 1991. They are known for applying complex composed structures to ordinary daily human behavior and originating the performance techniques required for these compositions to manifest in the medium of live theatre--embodied composition. Subjected to contortions, subversions and convolutions, "natural" behavior reveals its socially constructed face. On stage, without digital mediation and undeniably live, characters play out stark contradictions with an air of stubborn continuity, seemingly impossible worlds are inhabited with ease and disjointed logical systems clash in jarring coherences. The results, ranging from humorous and disarming to mesmerizing and disorienting, arise as metaphors for social processes.
