<> Review by Katy Diamond Hamer on Eyes Towards the Dove



In her closing performance, EavesdroppingAlexa Hoyer randomly collected conversations and exchanges overheard in subway cars across the city. These fleeting moments without context were transcribed into scripts and given to actors just before they took the stage. The actors performed, interpreted and improvised, weaving fragments of story into narratives of imaginary city life.Eavesdropping was a non-system of storytelling informed by chance and uncertainty. Born in Hamburg, Germany, Alexa Hoyer holds a BFA from Webster University in St. Louis, MO and an MFA in sculpture from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
