Davis Freeman (Belgium)
Too shy to stare (US Premiere)

“The most intimate and liberating performance experience I have ever encountered.”
– Rachel Zeharin, Live Art Development Agency

“Starts there where most performances end…The peep show of your dreams”
– Elke Van Campenhout

A carousel of identity and illusion, Too shy to stare breaks the barrier between performer and audience through highly original and entirely unrepeatable means. Davis Freeman creates an intensely intimate environment where you sit down, relax, and discover who is left confronting you at the end of the day.

Please note: Audience is limited to 10 people per performance and ticket buyers must make an appointment to have their photograph taken at least 48 hours in advance of attending the performance. Why? It’s a secret.

Musicians:
Brian McCorkle, Ed RosenBerg, Hahn Rowe

Performers:
Maya Orchin, Nora Petroliunas, Lauren Garson, Andrew Broaddus, Matthew Morris, Hope Davis, Megan Harrold, Winnie Ho, Laura Hicks and Paul Singh

Co-produced by Random Scream. Made possible with support from Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Koen Kwanten, Kaai theatre, Damaged goods, and the VGC. Created in part at the Arts Collaboration Lab, a partnership between Columbia University School of the Arts and Performance Space 122 in July 2011.
