19/07/2008: Femme Façade
STYX Project Space is proud to announce a performance of Femme Fašade on 19 July 2008, 7 pm.
The performances of artist Valerie Renay (aka Femme Fašade) are comprised of enigmatic surfaces, the fascination of which is not merely situated in the pure opposition of nearness and distance. Rather, Femme Fašade confronts her audience as an advocate of the plurality of roles and as an endless game with veneers, thus allowing the desire for the body's legibility to become obsolete.
Valerie Renay is a French performer, director, live artist, cabaret, film and one-half of the band Noblesse Oblige. She has worked with the Pacitti Company, Marisa Carnesky, Clod Ensemble, Gary Stevens, Joshua Sofaer, La Ribot, and Song Theatre. Renay has also hosted cabaret nights at the Whoopee Club and Hoxton Bark (London).
