Adrienne Truscott They Will Use the Highways

Created in collaboration with David Neumann, Natalie Agee, Carmine Covelli, Neal Medlyn and Mauri Walton.

Adrienne Truscott’s new work, tentatively titled they will use the highways, will draw on images and phrases that have awoken, confused, humored or disgusted the choreographer in the last year. Much of they will use the highways was decided upon on the New Jersey turnpike in July and the rest of it is being sussed out under the dictatorial control of the choreographer, between snacks in rehearsal, with little or no cooperation from the dancers. She is, however, wholly dependent upon their talent and skills for success.

Adrienne Truscott has been performing, creating work and teaching in NYC for the last ten years. Most recently, her neo-vaudevillian collaboration with Tanya Gagne, The Wau Wau sisters, was seen off-Broadway at the Ars Nova Theater and at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. Adrienne was a founding member of LAVA, Sarah East Johnson’s Obie and Bessie Award-winning, circus-inspired dance company. She has worked with David Neumann, Sarah Michelson, Jennifer Miller’s Circus Amok, The Bindlestiff Family Circus, Linda Austin, Jennifer Allen, Julie Atlas Muz, Murray Hill and Russian ex-pat art pranksters Khomar and Melamid, among others. Her work has been seen at Performance Space 122, Dixon Place, The Painted Bride (Philadelphia) and The Kitchen, as well as The Bowery Ballroom, CBGB’s and The Henry Fonda Theater (LA).
