The Bushwick Starr, NYC
Directed by Jennie MaryTai Liu
"…appealingly spiky humor…"
— LAURA COLLINS-HUGHES, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“...an idiosyncratic tour of the female subconscious... an exploration of what it's really like to be a girl, traversing territory that is often grotesque, but strangely charming.”
— MIRIAM FELTON-DANSKY, THE VILLAGE VOICE
"A riotous performance of a life lived not according to plan. The antithesis of desire - stability - rather than success at all costs becomes a favored choice."
— DANIELLE KALAMARAS, BUSHWICK DAILY
About the show
Actress Fury is a passion play of one tormented actress as she takes on the role of herself. The audience sits inside a dressing room encircled by mirrors, as three female performers contest with their own deep-seated desire to be extraordinary. Dramatic scenarios unfurl through dance to reveal an anti-strategy about wrestling with ambition and being female in this 21st century moment.
Performed by: Jennie MaryTai Liu, Hannah Heller, and Alexa Weir
