Le Cadeau

collaborative performance
Le Cadeau is a collaborative performance inspired by the woman as depicted in the life and art of Modigliani. Through a series of solo vignettes, each woman ritualizes the practice of one of his women.

Directed by Clover Morell for The Artistic Home's Quat-Z-Arts Ball in Chicago, Illinois.

Featuring Tif Bullard, Clover Morell, Anida Yoeu Ali, Marsee Ross, Kallie Clark, Annie Rudnik, Judith Harding, Cristal Sabbagh, and Elizabeth Czekner.

My solo vignette is inspired by a photograph of Modigliani, an image of his mistress, and his painting a dark-haired woman in black with a bob haircut. In the 1 and a half minute rotation, I switch between two changes of clothing: the mistress muse & the artist. A record is flipped on a stand-alone record player between changes as I recite words spoken on a listen and repeat BBC French language album.

Solo Duration: 1 minute 30 seconds.
Piece Duration: 15 minutes.
