Description

A series of works realized with you and for you:
the premise of Faye Driscoll’s work is clear from the instructions to the spectators. Active, complicit. Thank you for Coming: Attendance invites you to take part in an experience born out of the marvellous and terrible desire for connection, how to look for it and how to lose it. People attending the show are politely involved, immersed in a performance-tour de force, as familiar as it is disconcerting in its exploration of new ways of coming together.
