Laure Prouvost: They Are Waiting for You (Performance)

Every Fri. and Sat. from Feb. 9-10
8 p.m.
Performance Art, Theater

To conclude her exhibition “Laure Prouvost: They Are Waiting for You,” the French-born conceptual artist presents a world-premiere performance in collaboration with artist Sam Belinfante and choreographer Pierre Droulers. It’s also her first major production for the stage, which will include film, movement, and a score performed live by local and New York musicians. Prouvost has made several films in the past in which she plays with conventional narrative and communication modalities by distorting sound, sight, and meaning with wit. Her artwork does something similar. By interweaving movement, sound, found objects, painting, fiction, and fact, she challenges and transforms expected meanings into a restless discourse about the nature of language and understanding in a fractured yet increasingly interconnected world.
