Furies, The Walk | Chicago 2009
Out of the ashes of war, three performers emerged as Furies, ironically, in the midst of a high fashion show. The Furies walked the runway embodying fleeting moments of a war torn society of anger, sorrow, confusion, revenge, compassion and inevitably the need for each other to move forward. Breathing heavily under gas masks and carrying a symbolic bloodline seen as a military parachute, the Furies’ staccato movements captured what happens to human life when it is interrupted with inhumane acts of violence and destruction.
Performed by Nomadic Revival (Anida Yoeu Ali, Cristal Sabbagh, & Alycia Scott Zollinger)
