YVONNE MEIER{0}

NOVEMBER 9–12 – Multiple Bessie-Award winning artist Yvonne Meier shares two pieces: Durch Dick und Duenn, an all new work for multiple soloists, and Durch Nacht und Nebel, a short solo for Meier. In Durch Dick und Duenn (Through Thick and Thin) performers Lorene Bouboushian, Lisa Kusanagi, and Meier move through a rapid-fire sequence of eccentric action and shape-shifting characters as they navigate a volatile landscape of murky depths, brittle and explosive walls, and a few surprises. This new work draws on Meier’s 30+ year practice of improvisational Releasing and Authentic Movement techniques. In Durch Nacht und Nebel (which translates to By Night and Fog), seen at last year’s American Realness Festival, Meier transforms herself with provocative costumes.

“Fearlessly morphing from one creature to the next — one transformation involved an orange bodysuit affixed with the plastic babies, and in another, she was coated in black paint — she exposed her aging body with aplomb. Is there nothing she’s afraid of?” wrote Gia Kourlas (New York Times).
