The Truth: A Tragedy
(Cynthia Hopkins)

 

Driscoll choreographed a solo dance for The Truth: A Tragedy is a live black comedy documentary chronicling Cynthia Hopkins’ father’s decline and fall from Parkinson’s Disease, through a structure more akin to a cabinet of curiosities or dime museum (of the nascent, hybrid variety) than a traditional theater performance piece.

“Dances, choreographed by Faye Driscoll, become cathartic exercises in frustration, as well as defiant assertions of strength by a woman who has watched both of her parents lose their mobility.”
