Jack Ferver
Mon Ma Mes

Saturday, October 6
at 8pm

FIAF, Le Skyroom

The New York Times has described choreographer, writer, performer, and teacher Jack Ferver’s work as “restless, visceral, and often painful...as sympathetic as it is bitingly corrosive.”

The flimsy membrane between what part is real and what part is fiction is one of the disarming traits of Ferver’s work. In Mon Ma Mes, he uses a stylized and impersonal question and answer format to recount his life, while simultaneously performing and deconstructing one of his works, all while a documentary is shot of him. The layered combination of self-analysis and performance creates an intimacy with the audience that reveals as much as it presents.
