Synopsis: 

Acclaimed dance-theater artist, Jennie MaryTai Liu’s newest work, Actress Fury, a passion play of one tormented actress as she takes on the role of herself. The audience sits inside a dressing room encircled by mirrors, as three female performers contest with their own deep-seated desire to be extraordinary. Dramatic scenarios unfurl through dance to reveal an anti-strategy about wrestling with ambition and being female in this 21st century moment.

    Raging Ambition, and Then Some ‘Actress Fury,’ a Dance-Theater Work Set in a Dressing Room

    Laura Collins-Hughes

    February 10, 2014: The cacophony rises as the voices of the three women overlap: the first singing, the second talking into a microphone, the third speaking directly to the spectators while she moves among them. Eventually, the singer has had enough. “I can’t even hear myself!” she erupts. “You guys are just loud. And annoying.” It’s a scripted rant, but not all of the dissonance in Actress Fury, at the Bushwick Starr, is deliberate. This dance-theater piece, by Jennie MaryTai Liu and her company, Grand Lady Dance House, is nominally about actresses and ambition.

    An Idiosyncratic Tour of the Female Subconscious in Actress Fury

    Miriam Felton-Dansky

    February 5, 2014: In her new piece, Actress Fury, Jennie MaryTai Liu leads her audiences on an idiosyncratic tour of the female subconscious. Clad in sequined pastel leotards, Liu and co-performers Hannah Heller and Alexa Weir sing, narrate, and dance their way through an exploration of what it's really like to be a girl, traversing territory that is often grotesque, but strangely charming.

    Twentysomethings’ Angst at “Actress Fury” at The Bushwick Starr

    Danielle Kalamaras

    February 4, 2014: Be twenty something. Planning your track in this world, juggling the job search with after-hours dancing or dates at that great wine bar. You wake up and press play to the same-old morning monologue: “This is my year, this is my time to get what I want.” Now go see Actress Fury. Three women, tearing up the dance floor, chanting in unison: “I want to be killin’ it-killin’ it-killin’ it-killin’ it.”
