OMG, New Yorkers! You are all lucky to have the opportunity to see Sean O’Neill and Liz Peterson‘s fantastic and intimate performance piece Express Yourself later this month at the Incubator Arts Project. We saw the show last summer and everyone we know was talking about it for weeks after.
In this rigorous piece about the dynamics of performance, performer Liz Peterson and director Sean O’Neill explore the limits of media and form. Weaving together dance, personal confessions, synchronized video, and a pop sensibility, Express Yourself is a stylized depiction of a performance in progress. The show is framed by a virtuosic performance by Peterson, who navigates the ever-shifting boundaries of the work with disarming vulnerability and charisma. Winner of the 2011 Jury Prize for Risk and Innovation at SummerWorks, Canada’s largest juried theatre festival.
