About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Autophobia (n.) phobia of isolation; a morbid fear of abandonment, or a dread of being alone or isolated. Through the exploration of these themes auto/PHOBIA looks to transform loneliness and at how the self-adapts to its ever-present specter.

Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if You want to broaden your expectations of what dance and performance art can be and understand that art doesn't exist to simply entertain.

Don't see it if You're the pedestrian​ sort who has a limited capacity for opening oneself to different experiences and simply wants to see "a show"

Clever, Absorbing, Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if ...you understand what fringe is (not part of the mainstream; unconventional, peripheral, or extreme). Dare to experience a modern day show

Don't see it if .... you are an old-school expectator, not willing to challenge yourself. ... if you are mainstream and boring.

Absorbing, Clever, Enchanting, Exquisite, Edgy

See it if you want to see dreamlike difficult challenging choreography that breaks the normal expectation for dance, art and the human body.

Don't see it if You are looking for an easy evening watching classical dance in a narrative format. This piece is avant-garde, tense, dark, but also funny.

Theatre is Easy
August 24th, 2016

"'auto/PHOBIA 'is innovative, but ultimately feels unfinished...'auto/PHOBIA' most misses the mark with its lack of major stakes. It does not have any kind of arc....The theatergoer new to or unsure about experimental performance will likely find themselves thoroughly confused and disappointed by this show. However, it is a must-see for anyone with a visual bent who is more interested in experiencing something fresh, if rough around the edges, than something tried-and-true."
