Faye Driscoll Dance Group
THE FIELD, New York City, as fiscal sponsor for FAYE DRISCOLL DANCE GROUP, Brooklyn, New York, received $8,000 in support of the development and production of notnot (working title). Founded by artists for artists, The Field is dedicated to providing strategic services to performing artists and companies in New York City and beyond. It fosters creative exploration, stewards innovative management strategies, and helps artists reach their fullest potential. Faye Driscoll is a choreographer who investigates new forms of theatrical experience aimed to provoke feeling, stimulate the senses, and activate the mind. The new evening-length work notnot (working title) examines the tension among beauty, power, and desire. Driscoll will probe the subject of beauty as it is manifested through the ineffable promise of romantic love, as a perpetual dangling carrot, as myth, in the blurred power domain between varied cultural definitions of masculine/feminism, and as the performative aspect of inevitably dissolving selves.
