Even divas reuse

Marija Plavsic sent over this short film Storefront Diva, which is a collage from a 4-hour performance inspired by Joseph Cornell’s dream fragment in which he saw Claude Debussy playing piano in a storefront. A few months ago, Marija picked up carpet, fabric, paint, Plexiglas, trim, and more for the costume and set of the piece that occurred on December 27 in Greenwich Village. It features Kathleen Supové on piano, video installation work by Aleksandar Kostic, and composition work by the director Joan La Barbara. The whole performance was fantastic and people stood outside in the rain and wind for a long time just to watch. This performance was Phase One of Storefront Diva, and Phase Two will occur at The Flea Theater this June. It will be a new composition and feature a new video installation creating a fusion of past and present, so be sure to check it out. Here is the collage of the first phase:
