Siri Vik: Femme Fatale
Sat, Apr 29, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Siri's new Shedd Presents cabaret evening explores Femme Fatàle, the controversial archetype and provocative muse of the ages.
Accompanied by a seven-piece chamber ensemble, Siri presents a three-set revue of wildly diverse music, stringing together arias from Carmen, Tosca and Lulu alongside songs from the Rolling Stones, Tom Waits, The Velvet Underground, Bjork, and some timeless jazz standards connected to the famous fatales of 20th century film noir.
As a whole, Femme Fatàle is a conversation-in-theater and music -- a conversation which moves beyond the stiletto heels and the come-hither voice, to the nature of desire and response to desire, objectification, fantasy, as well as the curious structure of self-versus-other -- the ways we continue to play out ancient roles and patterns of being, and the ways we perhaps transcend them and break into something new and free.
