Experimental choreographer-performer Jack Ferver loves to make movies his own. His past works have been inspired by films such as Return to Oz, Cleopatra, and Black Swan (for that one, he camped it up as Mila Kunis). His latest piece, All of a Sudden, is based on the film Suddenly, Last Summer (originally a play by Tennessee Williams), which concerns a young woman (Elizabeth Taylor) who goes insane after she witnesses her cousin’s death, the doctor who tries to help her, and the aunt who wants her lobotomized. The work, which aims to explore the relationship between therapist and patient, is a collaboration between Ferver and his longtime dramaturg, Joshua Lubin-Levy.
