Faye Driscoll was hailed "1 of 25 to watch out for in ‘08" by Dance Magazine. Her second evening-length work, 837 Venice Boulevard, received a 2009 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” award and was named "one of the top five dance shows of the year" by the New York Times. In 2009, her video work Loneliness was featured in Younger Than Jesus at the New Museum. Her three evening-length dances to date were commissioned and presented by Dance New Amsterdam (Wow Mom, Wow), HERE Arts Center and Key City Public Theater in Washington (837 Venice Boulevard), and American Dance Festival with Dance Theater Workshop (There is so much mad in me). Following a fully sold out run in March 2010, Dance Theater Workshop re-mounted Driscoll’s There is so much mad in me in September 2010. Her work has received multi-year support from the Greenwall Foundation and the Jerome Foundation, a recent National Dance Project NEFA award, and an LMCC Fund for Creative Communities grant.

Driscoll is also an avid collaborator in theater and video. She was a primary collaborator with Young Jean Lee in creating the Untitled Feminist Show and choreographed for three of Young Jean Lee’s other shows - We're Gonna Die, The Shipment and Church - as well as for Cynthia Hopkins’s The Truth: A Tragedy, Taylor Mac’s Obie Award-winning The Lily's Revenge, NTUSA’s Chautauqua!

She has been an adjunct professor at Bard College and NYU’s Playwrights Horizon’s Theater School, and has created work for the Five College Dance Department and Barnard College. Driscoll is a 2011 Choreographic Fellow at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, and an Artist-In-Residence at Headlands Center for the Arts and Baryshnikov Arts Center.
