Gibney Dance 280 Broadway, entrance at 53A Chambers

PROBLEM WORK OR “FAILURE” AS A FEMINIST ACT Adrienne Truscott, joined by makers David Thomson and Melanie George, will present and talk about excerpts from a show that has caused her nothing but trouble—from the humorously banal to the deeply consequential, both personally and professionally. This show continues to teach her about her process, impulses and impulse control. She has learned strategies for responding to reviews that, while possibly accurate, are also gendered and misogynist, ways of interrogating one’s work and the cultural contexts in which it is made and presented. This show has now garnered her both 4- star reviews and lost her a job.
