Jack Ferver in New York this October

21 September 2012

Author : reba

The New York Times has described choreographer, writer, performer, and teacher Jack Ferver’s work as “restless, visceral, and often painful…as sympathetic as it is bitingly corrosive.”

He will perform two different performances in New York this October.

The first, All of a Sudden (Excerpt) for Prelude is based on the Tennesse Williams play and film Suddenly Last Summer where he has collaborated with Joshua Lubin-Levy. The Tennesse Williams play tells the story of a young girl who witnesses the murder of her young cousin by the doctor who tries to help her which gradually drives her insane. Ferver and Lubin-Levy perform against the back drop of the film being projected as they both create an intersection of such complex caring, loving and violent dyads (including the therapist/patient and the artist/dramaturg) exploding the moment when we are so overwhelmed we must ask for help, where reality becomes so heavy we bring in others (real or imaginary) to help shoulder the burden.

The second performance is named Mon Ma Mes which is a performance about Ferver questioning his life which will include him performing on stage while at the same time having a documentary made about himself. The layered combination of self-analysis and performance creates an intimacy with the audience that reveals as much as it presents.
