Juliana F. May: Adult Documentary

In Adult Documentary five performers sperformers share their real and imagined histories. Through a repetitive and distorted coo-coo clock choreography of fragmented text, sound, gesture and movement, the piece works audiences through a full sensory experience that addresses the relationship between form and trauma or the trauma of form. How does the so-called “aboutness” and shape of a word or gesture disrupt its meaning, and how does the form i.e., repetition, space and time rupture or repair these seemingly hermetic relationships. Adult Documentary delves deep into sensation and psychology offering a uniquely felt choreographic experience.

Adult Documentary was commissioned by The Chocolate Factory Theater and received support from The MAP Fund, supported by the Dorris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Gibney Dance’s Dance in Process Residency, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the Jerome Foundation.
