MANCC Welcomes Jack Ferver – Choreographic Fellow May 23 – June 8, 2012
Work in Development: All of a Sudden
The Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) welcomes Choreographic Fellow Jack Ferver (NY) into residence. Ferver is a NYC based choreographer, writer, performer, and teacher who has been creating full-length works since 2007. Ferver premiered his last work, Rumble Ghost at PS 122 in December 2010. In 2011, the piece was brought back for their COIL Festival. Ferver’s exploration of the twists and turns of the mind are explored from the macro, with his continual study of psychology, to the micro, as he draws from his own persona and that of his performers.
At MANCC, Ferver will be in the beginning stages of development for a new production, All of a Sudden, based on Tennessee William’s Suddenly Last Summer (a play, and subsequent movie starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift, about a therapist who helps a young girl driven insane after witnessing her cousin’s gruesome murder). Ferver will be collaborating with NYU doctoral candidate and performer Joshua Lubin-Levy to research and reflect on exploring the idea of insanity and the dynamic between artist & dramaturg and patient & therapist.

Seating is limited. To make a reservation, please visit Jack Ferver’s MANCC webpage.
