THIS at Red Eye Theater, Minneapolis, MN
Adrienne Truscott made THIS. THIS is a solo performance which may not always be a solo, created specifically for Live Arts stage. THIS is a small or large or medium act of artistic survivalism and an ever-evolving work that writes, in real time, the libretto of the performance the artist is attempting to do which changes with each performance to reflect the new context brought by the performance at hand. THIS is a run-on sentence. THIS is a grift. THIS is a piece of cake.
Times of show differ on different dates. July 28, 7pm; July 29, 9pm. Artist Talk July 29, 3pm
"In THIS Truscott has managed a real tongue twister: to make a dance about dance with no dance in it...to choreograph a dance of the mind" - Gia Kourlas, New York Times
''Truscott is the poster woman for today’s working artist. THIS makes you want to crawl into her mind and see what else is inside. Memories (ones that may or may not be true) collide with today’s headlines, musings of what makes gripping art, and feelings about one’s body. It’s strangely comforting and relatable. It’s not preachy or over emotional. It’s exactly what it should be in this moment.' - Dance Enthusiast
