Femme Fatale 2
Paul Schledwitz
Siri Vik: Femme Fatale
Sat, Apr 29, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Siri's new Shedd cabaret evening explores femme fatale, the controversial archetype and provocative muse of the ages. Accompanied by an excellent 7-piece ensemble, this three-set show will stretch into diverse musical territory, from Alban Berg's Lulu to Puccini's Tosca and Bizet's Carmen, over to classic folk and pop with song selections by The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan; some of the greatest standards from early to late films noir, and to the work of more contemporary, alternative songwriters Bjork, Nick Lowe and Laura Mvula.
As a whole, Femme Fatale 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.
Seating will be standard Shedd cabaret on the main floor, reserved concert seating in the balcony. All seats are reserved. A full bar is open during the performance.
