UPDATE: Faye Driscoll’s work-in-progress showing on Aug 31 has been canceled; her creative residency at the Wex will be rescheduled at a later date.
FREE work-in-progress presentation of a new dance piece being created with support from a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award. Reserve your tickets in advance so you don't get shut out!
Dance artist Faye Driscoll returns to the Wex (her creative home away from home) to begin the development of THANK YOU FOR COMING: SPACE. And we’re inviting you to see some of the material she’s workshopped during this residency and to hear firsthand about the ideas that underpin her next production—for free.
THANK YOU FOR COMING: SPACE will be the final installment in Driscoll’s trilogy dedicated to finding fresh and fun new ways to engage with audiences during the process of performance. The previous works in this series were big hits with local dance followers, including THANK YOU FOR COMING: PLAY, which premiered here at the completion of an earlier creative residency. Celebrating the connectivity of artists and audiences, THANK YOU FOR COMING: SPACE will be a physical installation and a performance customized for each community, both designed to be open and malleable to amplify the communal experience.
THANK YOU FOR COMING: SPACE is commissioned by the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University through its Artist Residency Award program.
Faye Driscoll’s residency at the Wexner Center is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
