barefaced...inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces is a dance production infusing film, narrative, original music and live dance performance. This unique retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche follows two sisters as they traverse the frontier of truth, trust and devotion. barefaced is movement prose confronting the world between gods and men, reason and broken souls.
Elu Dance Company and local artists come together to bring this epic story to life.
“I saw well why the gods do not speak openly, nor let us answer. Till that word can be dug out of us, why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?” - C.S Lewis Till We Have Faces
