New York sculptor Louise Nevelson’s life was one 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 an unabashed scrutiny.  Flamboyant and unapologetic, Nevelson answers questions with a clarity born of the distance provided by death.

Edward Albee’s Occupant is a touching, humorous, and honest tribute to a woman who was a pioneer for free-thinking females everywhere, but also stood strongly on her own as one of the 20th century’s greatest artistic minds. Edward Albee’s Occupant is a testament of will, internal strength, and the cryptic force that continues to drive great artists.
