Poetry Electric: Make Him My Wife

November 28, 2016

Monday at 8PM

Make Him My Wife is a performance in two parts about identity and performing. The first is on trying to find your voice, the second on feeling like a fraud. It's abstract; at times fun, at times sort've odd and opaque. To Make Her My Wife is to marry, to sleep with and to kill someone all at once; incompatible parts, simultaneously active. In Make Him My Wife two performer scientists (tsitneics remrofrep eno) study how unalike things happen and come together to create inexpressible (elbaffeni), unique wholes. They (s/he) setout to study the theatre, see if it can express the breadth of a moment, the thoughts in a glance, the deep and the shallow of identity. Ultimately, consumption, everything at once, nothing resolved, keep moving along.

This project was made possible, in part, through The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Harkness Foundation for Dance, the Davis/Dauray Family Fund, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Pieces of it were developed at the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training, and in Mexico City on a travel grant from the Fund for Authentic Journalism.
