MFA 2 Dance Thesis: 'Ways of Forgetting'
CalArts, Sharon Disney Lund Theater
DANCE: Meryl Murman's MFA Thesis Concert
Ways of Forgetting invites us into the colorful, neurotic, wacky world of the closeted imaginations of six young people who are on the run—though they don’t know where to. Certain that humans descended from birds, obsessed with social networks and longing for human connection in spite of an acute awareness of the brutality of intimacy, they confront their desires for tenderness while simultaneously yearning to escape out the back door of the theater, hitch the next ride out of town, and forget themselves.
Whimsical, athletic, and at times funny, it forces us to question deeply why and how we make ourselves lonely.
