The François Vase is a collaboration between composer Daniel Fox and visual artist Gabriela Vainsencher. The video re-tells the Greek myth of the labyrinth from the Minotaur’s perspective. This retelling was inspired by the theory that the thread Ariadne is said to have given to Theseus is actually a metaphor for a choreography that encodes a blueprint of the labyrinth. The video features Green Chair Dance Group and the score will be performed live by the Momenta Quartet. Cinematography and editing by Dave Jannetta.
The François Vase will premiere in Philadelphia, and will be preceded by Bach's Chaconne for solo violin, performed by Noco Kawamura.
Performances are free, but seating is limited at both venues.To ensure a seat, email your RSVP tofrancoisvase(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, number of seats (up to four) and desired venue (Philadelphia orBrooklyn).
