I am thrilled to present new work. It feels timely, urgent. I hope you’ll join me.
June 9 & 10 7PM & 8:30PM in the Walking Distance Dance Festival at ODC Theater.
‘C*NT, or The Horror of Nothing to See’ is the result of years of research (at Atlantic Center for the Arts & FRESH Festival) and is indelibly marked by feminist rage & grief. It is also drag. This is Fauxnique in the contemporary dance context, taking her time & getting real.
This is my first premiere at San Francisco’s ODC Theater in seven years and I am honored that it is part of the Walking Distance Dance Festival, especially in the company of such talented cohorts (tinypistol, FACT/SF & The Foundry). I am also honored to receive support from Kenneth Rainin Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission & Zellerbach Family Foundation.
My brilliant collaborative team is giving me life & includes Nicole Archer, Jesse Hewit, Hope Mohr, Christy Funsch & Larry Arrington (Dramaturgy), Jonathan Solo (Costume), Marc Kate (Sound), Del Medoff (Light) & Gregory Stock (Production).
‘Monique’s work should be required reading in the library of contemporary performance. Through vivid imagery and conceptual sophistication, Monique delivers layered, genre-busting performance that probes the fictions and pressures surrounding female-ness today.’ – Hope Mohr
‘With “C*NT…” Jenkinson is laying out a stark visual and narrative context for Fauxnique that is almost unnervingly liminal. As a maker, she maintains her wicked rigor for smashing the personal up against the political, but this work additionally takes up a presence of spirit, as a timely and necessary compass for directing her through some particularly devastating and powerful interrogations of patriarchy.’ – Jesse Hewit
