Unapologetic and flamboyant, New York sculptor Louise Nevelson’s life was marked by intrepid artistic triumphs as well as deep inner turmoil. In Edward Albee’s OCCUPANT both her public accomplishments and private emotional conflicts are thoroughly examined by an unnamed interviewer who questions the posthumous Nevelson with unabashed scrutiny. From her unique vantage point beyond the grave, Nevelson answers his queries with a clarity born of the distance provided by death. The result is a touching, humorous, and honest tribute to a woman who was a pioneer of free-thinking females everywhere. Edward Albee’s OCCUPANT is a testament of will, internal strength, and the cryptic force that continues to drive great artists.
