Fefu and Her Friends

Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 8:00pm to 9:30am

Virtual Event

Fefu and Her Friends is presented as a 90 minute live cinema-streaming-performance for eight female, nonbinary and/or gender nonconforming performers via remote cameras and real-time effects processing live-streamed for a remote audience—promising that performances from afar have never felt more intimate, never more close. Their conversations draw us to the kitchen, into the bath, through the bedroom and into the garden, we snuggle up to Julia, walk hand in hand with Paula to the patio, have words in the living room, dance in the study and race up the stairs of Fefu’s home in New England—the luxurious Gropius Haus. In the final act, after the rifle shots and the arguments we’ll find ourselves once again in no real place, but witness to one another. Having made a difference, having heard, and having seen one another. Speaking freely and compassionately at last. Eschewing distance in the name of expression, and anyway, as Cecilia says, “We cannot survive in a vacuum. We must be part of a community...”
