APPETITE traces the source, pleasure and conflict related to our acquisitiveness. For Osserman the process of reading the body as text, knowing and unknowing what movement signifies can help us accept contradiction and complexity.

Performers: Lauren Ferguson, Emily Vetsch and Wendy Osserman with Briana Bartenieff, Hallie Hayne and Liliana Kelson. The cast ranges in age from eleven to seventy.

Music is by Skip La Plante who has composed for over 100 modern dance and off-off Broadway theater presentations including collaborating with Joseph Chaiken and Sam Shepard on TONGUES/SAVAGE LOVE. He co-founded MUSIC FOR HOMEMADE INSTRUMENTS in 1975. La Plante invents, builds, composes for, performs on and teaches with musical instruments built from trash. Lighting for Appetite is designed by Alex Bartenieff, costumes by longtime company member, Cori Kresge.

The New York Times has described Osserman’s work as “provocative precisely because it feels like a new amalgam of some indefinable kind… There is a kind of magic, a sense of being taken to a place you might never visit again.”
