Electra
I stand in the middle of the stage as an automated diva, moving my arms, turning my face to the sky. I sing loud and let my luminous costume express itself. The story I tell is full of associations about life, death and fear, such as a waking dream or a black and white nightmare. Especially written for a first presentation in New York, Electra refers to the mythological figure of the same name, to electronic music, to science-fiction and to opera. For my vocal composition, I get inspired by Metropolis (Fritz Lang), Robot Dreams (Isaac Asimov) and Big Science (Laurie Anderson).
I wear a long and pyramidal satin dress and jewels (a ring, a bracelet, a necklace, a crown) decorated with LED lights which can react alternately to my words and to my actions.
