BOOM! New York Live Arts Premiere

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


BOOM!, a new duet by Cynthia Oliver, features Oliver and Leslie Cuyjet as individuals, friends, strangers, family and younger/older versions of themselves, negotiating relations that are persistently in flux. Building upon a non-linear sequence of narratives around a life and a relationship—of a woman to herself, her history, her present and her future—BOOM! is a choreography of shifting realities. It is a looping, fractured unfolding, examining the notions of destiny, when life happens and when “fairness” and cause and effect do not necessarily align.
