Elizabeth Weinstein and Valerie Perczek spent a month collaborating on the creation of this new work. They performed it at the Coatesville Cultural Society at the end of January and are honored to bring it to Philadelphia at AUX Performance Space // Vox Populi Weaving together projected video, music, and movement, Elizabeth Weinstein and Valerie Perczek have created a world of abstraction and symbol rising from the myth The Red Thread, or Le Fil Rouge. The story tells that the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles or little finger of those that are destined for one another, either as lovers or to help each other in a certain way. The magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never breaks, and from this tension, Valerie and Elizabeth excavate the pieces that weave, ensnare, and illuminate the threads of life between them. Spilling from ladders, wombs, and oceans of fabric, they tread through layers of shadow, sound, and dance. Moving projections are a documentation of illusion and memory, casting a line to guide in the formation of the work. Singing voices invoke a universal language, a fashion show mocks the temporality of identity, a mouth full of marbles, bespoke skirts the length of a river, a love letter to the transfigurations of the self. for more information :: http://voxpopuligallery.org/calendar-event/le-fil-rouge-the-red-thread/
