A solo dance theatre performance with live music by Kristopher Apple and video installation by Natalia
Valerdi. This is a work in progress exploring questions of identity of the ‘performer’ in relation to a resonating lineage of historic women, from Elizabeth I to Gertrude Stein to Marilyn Monroe to Pina Bausch. 50 pairs of shoes in a snow white space evoke the mysterious presence of the lives of 50 notable women, who left their distinctive footprints. Through their own words and images, the solo performer re-inhabits , re-imagines and re-animates their persona's, navigating a constantly shifting presence and physicality.
Videographer: Rebecca Salzer
