Widows Walk (2022)

Musée d’Art de Rouyn-Noranda, festival Cinedanse, Québec, Canada, performance short film, 5'15

 

For the performance Widow's Walk, the New Yorker Jil Guyon comes for the first time to Rouyn-Noranda. She presents a new version of her performance Desert Widow. The live performances feature the character executing a suspenseful walk in radically slow time. This short film is a digital interpretation of that event.

WIDOW (2013-present), created and performed by Jil Guyon, is a collection of solo, movement-based works made for stage, screen, and print. In each creation, the Widow character explores the contours of grief and transcendence through ritualized gesture. Her defining black dress, heels, and unfurling belt form a visual leitmotiv that sets the stylistic and emotional tone throughout the series. Archetypal subtexts—the movie star; the femme fatale; the survivor; the lonely wanderer—arise and dissolve, creating a symbolic arena for the investigation of female agency in the wake of loss.
