Chambre Noire by Plexus Polaire

In January 2019, the French-Norwegian puppeter Yngvild Aspeli with her company Plexus Polaire, will be touring in New York and Chicago with her recent creation Chambre noire. 

From January 10 to 13, with five performances at Under The Radar Festival-The Public Theater, in New York, and January 17 to 18, with three performances at  Chicago International Theatre Puppet Festival, as part of its new program The Festival Exchanges

Chambre noire is a wild hallucination about the death-bed of Valerie Jean Solanas (1936-1988). The most beautiful girl in America, the talented psychology-student who spent her life going in and out of mental institutions, the first intellectual whore, writer, radical feminist, creator of the SCUM Manifesto, the woman who shot Andy Warhol… A character that is complex, multi-sided, outrageous and absolutely human.

Inspired by Sara Stridsberg novel “The Dream-faculty”, this performance is a duo with puppeteer Yngvild Aspeli and percussionist Ane Marthe Sørlien Holen. With life-sized puppets, broken songs, video-projections, a good dose of humour and a desert of solitude.

Running time: 60 minutes


The performances of Chambre Noire by Plexus Polaire in New York and Chicago are possible thanks to the support of FACE Contemporary Theater.
