Penelope

2004 | Friendly duo for a dancer and a singer
Cent fois sur le métier remets ton ouvrage, plutot que de broder 
et de tirer sur le fil de ton histoire, montres-en le fil rouge. 
Marabout, Bout de ficelle, Selle de chevalÖ 
Ainsi se dévide le cheveau des pensées. 

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. 
Continue to weave that wool until your loom brings forth the one, essential thread ; that all important red thread which courses through your story to bring it meaning and coherence and find clarity of mind as your previously jumbled thoughts become untangled.

Penelope, princess and queen of time weaves history as the days go by with her friend, Expectation, for company.
Young woman, woman, old woman, she travels the duration of life, a lifetime, leaving behind a legacy of patience, perseverance and delight.
Her story persists through the centuries, touches generations and still seems relevant today.
In a friendly duo, a singer-actress and a dancer embody a manifold Penelope.
Using material and thread, Penelope playfully weaves the ties of life and evokes the house that shelters, the boats that sail, the machines that measure time…
A universal story ?
