Eleanor Bauer's signature solo ELEANOR! is a wry diatribe on the collision between artistic production and the skills required in an artist's basic drives for money, recognition, and survival. In the place where self-promotion becomes artwork, selling and trading one's skills becomes selling and trading oneself, and diversity becomes sustainability, Bauer delivers a schizophrenic critical portrait of the performing artist today as a "post-Fordist art prostitute". Recently updated after a decade of change (and survival) in the field, ELEANOR! is for anyone who has made a show, seen a show, stood onstage, written a grant or considered chucking it all.
