Me, Michelle

By Jack Ferver

Sat, Nov 12, 2011

MAD is proud to present the world premiere of “Me, Michelle,” a new work from the choreographer Jack Ferver.  A duet by Ferver and fellow dancer-chorographer Michelle Mola, “Me, Michelle” takes the mysteries and myths of the life of Queen Cleopatra as a vehicle for two performers to uncover truths about this historical icon--and ultimately themselves.

Presented as part of Performa 11.

About Performa 11

Performa 11, the fourth edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, will be held in New York City from November 1–21, 2011. The three-week biennial will showcase new work by more than 100 of the most exciting artists working today, in an innovative program breaking down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, graphic design, and the culinary arts. Presented in collaboration with a consortium of more than 40 arts institutions and 25 curators, as well as a network of public spaces and private venues across the city, Performa 11 will ignite New York City with energy and ideas, acting as a vital “think tank” linking minds across the five boroughs and bringing audiences together for brilliant new performances in all disciplines.

Performa is the leading organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of twentieth-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the twenty-first century. Performa launched New York’s first performance biennial, Performa 05, in 2005, followed by Performa 07 (2007), and Performa 09 (2009).
