Presented by Sundance Institute Theatre Lab
In conjunction with Sundance Institute's vaunted Theatre Lab Program (at MASS MoCA for a two-week residency), we present a reading of My Arm by Lab Fellow Tim Crouch. My Arm is the story of an empty gesture. It's the confession of a man who has lived for thirty years by the courage of his lack of conviction, all the while becoming a celebrated medical specimen and an icon of the New York art scene.
Crouch's story is told through a combination of live performance and the animation of everyday objects supplied by the audience before the performance. Simple, honest, intimate and painfully funny, this reading of My Arm is above all an extraordinary work of solo theatre about modern art, bloody-mindedness and how the things we do when we're ten stick with us for life.
"... Crouch is the most engaging of performers, and he is actually exploring on stage the nature of art and performance itself, taking risks in the process... At these moments, Crouch is armed and dangerous." -The Guardian
