What if objects could speak their own personal histories? What if walls could breathe our stories of disappointment and desires? Aurélia Thierrée arrives at Lincoln Center Festival this summer with Murmurs, a dreamlike, largely wordless rumination on a woman’s adventure into a surreal and shifting landscape of deteriorating buildings and objects—a collaboration with her mother, Victoria Thierrée Chaplin. Chased by faceless gray people, and alternately wooed and menaced by featured performers Magnus Jakobsson and Jamie Martinez, Thierrée enchants and delights in this wonderful spectacle of low-tech circus artistry, filled with visual trickery, fantastical monsters, and magical sleight of theatrical hand. Innovatively using set design and puppetry to transform everyday things—cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, umbrellas, ladders, and staircases to nowhere—into manifestations of the soul, Murmurs straddles the delicate line between imagination and madness.

“Aurélia’s huge range of skills as an actress, illusionist and dancer makes her irresistible to watch.”

—Independent (London)
