FEBRUARY 5-8 – PERFORMANCE – ‘The Village of Vale’ is an exploration of storytelling through music, performance and an immersive, dynamic art installation that serves as the setting for each performance. It is one original gothic fairy tale told many different ways. Using prose, original music, illustration, installation art and performance, Vale upends conventional methods of storytelling by investigating how methods of storytelling influence each other while adapting it all to a one-of-a-kind performance event. ‘The Village of Vale’ is at once a collection record, a printed and illustrated storybook, and a multi-dimensional installation and performance art show, each distinct works of art that in performance become indistinguishable.
