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.”
The GWLT Box Office is open one hour prior to curtain.
