Jack Ferver's 2010 dance-theater smash-up, Rumble Ghost, summoned the spirits of Poltergeist to exorcise demons from painful family history. Now they're ba-aack. SWAN!!!, the latest cinema-parody by Ferver's Quality Without a Name company, targets the Oscar-nominated blockbuster Black Swan. Ferver will portray Lily, the new bad-girl ballerina in town whose rivalry with mommy dearest Nina (Jenn Harris) results in jetés, cunnilingus, and self-mutilation. Expect wit, pathos, and maybe another dip into the dark side from this rare bird of a choreographer.
