Statue is a silent narrative using music and imagery. Two people come upon a nude female bust and lend it an article of clothing. The statue comes to life, borrowing their body parts, as she ekes out an identity by observing the actors model stereotyped behavior, which she emulates. Through physical play and an exchange of shoes, the puppet grapples with what is “appropriate” for “male/female,” finally concluding by creating a new sculpture representative of a more inclusive and just world.
Created by and starring Céline Chevrier and Kristina Troske.
