“Performance art delivered with aplomb.” —Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
In Mon, Ma, Mes, the NYC-based dancer, choreographer, and writer examines the permeability between the real and the fictive in a disarming and interactive retrospective of his life and work. At first presented in the format of a solo lecture-performance, Ferver scrutinizes his life as an artist through a stylized question and answer session. Ferver performs emotionally charged excerpts of earlier works while simultaneously deconstructing them with humor and vulnerability. The layered combination of self-analysis and performance creates an intimacy with the audience that reveals the tragicomedy of the human psyche. Through sudden shifts in style and form, blurred boundaries emerge between the realms of grand theatrics and stark naturalism, character and self, horror and humor.
