Event description
Derek Fordjour presents a twice-daily performance titled Fly Away as part of his exhibition SELF MUST DIE at Petzel Gallery.

About this Event

Fly Away is the fantastical journey of a man whose name is never known. Welcome to know him through his quest for mastery along a series of fateful encounters. A cycle of wins and losses lead him to a profound confrontation which bring questions of autonomy, control and interdependence into stark focus.

Fly Away is a live puppet show inspired by the Bunraku style of Japanese Puppet Theatre. An original hand-crafted puppet is guided by a veteran cast of puppeteers set to an original score performed by oboist Hassan Anderson. The show is co-created by Derek Fordjour and Nick Lehane as a central feature of Fordjour’s solo exhibition event, SELF MUST DIE, on view at Petzel Gallery November 12–December 19, 2020.

Running time 28mins. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to show time. No late entries.

Masks required.
