RELIC is about celebrity, legend, and how we remember and recycle the artifice and truth of a diva. An androgynous figure, ghostly white and alien-like, struts, convulses, and mourns to an original score looped from remnants of a forgotten Joan Crawford interview. Shifting between the tragic and the comic, the result is a solo fantasia on vanity, beauty, and memory, that re-animates the past on its own terms.
