What is the work that constitutes an anti-thesis of itself? In a physical-vocal trio for Claude Debussy’s “String Quartet”, the rock-pop of the Rolling Stones and the Celtic folk-rock of Led Zeppelin, the action of the slamming body in the shape of a woman embraces a theatrical mythological space, one that recalls the DNA that has been encoded in the performers over the past three years of physical-vocal research. In this new incarnation, they choose to discover other abilities of their emerging performative psyche. They explore tensions between iconic psychedelic-rock and romantic classical sounds; femininity and animalism, the act of imagery and animation. Those tensions disintegrate and deconstruct from the everlasting familiarity of the choreography and the existence between pain and pleasure, the conscious and the id, the act of defamation and solidarity. They are bodies in a paradox, on a journey with knowledge and experience burned into their flesh, in the face of a new performative fantasy game.
It’s Pretty for You to LIE emanates from the ongoing physical-vocal practice, language, and technique developed in Annabelle Dvir’s full-length stage work 7INCH OF SLAM – THE FULL BODY SOUNDSCAPE, which upholds the tensions between perception vs. sensation, the embodiment of live sound and the shape of a soundscape. 7INCH//VIMEO.COM
