Monique Jenkinson (AKA Fauxnique)

NOV 29 – DEC 9, THU-SUN @ 8PM
Post-show Panel Discussion FRI, DEC 7

Instrument, the new solo by Monique Jenkinson exploits the vibrancy of the body in the ever-dying moment of live performance. Created in an experimental collaboration with three choreographers – Miguel Gutierrez, Chris Black, and Amy Seiwert – Instrument enacts, exposes and undermines the roles of dancer as workhorse and choreographer as auteur. The artist’s slippery relationship to authority and authorship is a major theme, as is the dancing body as translator, container of knowledge and preserver of culture. In her unique voice, dancer/performance artist Jenkinson (AKA Fauxnique), calls upon ballet star Rudolph Nureyev, Performance Art heroes of the 60’s and 70’s, and current discussions about ‘the body as archive’ to create a collage of iconic movement, historical anecdote, and personal narrative.

Discretion Advised: Nudity, adult sexual themes and coarse language
