Performing Arts Jack Ferver
Mon Ma Mes
Thursday, January 10, 2013
FIAF, Le Skyroom Full
2012 Crossing the Line artist, Jack Ferver returns to reprise his acclaimed lecture-performance commissioned for the festival.
In Mon Ma Mes, Ferver scrutinizes his life as an artist through an impersonal and stylized question-and-answer format. He then performs excerpts of an earlier work while simultaneously deconstructing it. The combination of humorous and dark self-analysis and performance creates an intimacy with the audience that reveals as much as it presents.
