MoMA: Hayley Aviva Silverman | Sunday Sessions

Hayley Aviva Silverman presents her ninth “dog play,” in which a small cast of untrained dogs take on well-known characters from popular culture.

This edition combines elements from the disaster film “Twister,” 1996, with Charles Dickens’ Oliver “Twist,” interspersed with songs from the musical, “Oliver!.” Each dog carries a speaker that projects the internal monologue of its character, prerecorded by human actors, including Vaginal Davis. The play takes place against an apocalyptic backdrop, made in collaboration with Matthew Schrader.
