Official video:
Short film "Storefront Diva" is a collage from a 4-hour performance inspired by Joseph Cornell's dream fragment in which he saw Claude Debussy playing piano in a storefront.

Phase One took place on December 27, 2011 from 4 -- 8 pm at 159 Bleecker St. -- a pop-up store location directly opposite Le Poisson Rouge, in the heart of Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Supové performed a composition by Joan La Barbara in a special set and costume designed by Marija Plavšić, accompanied by Aleksandar Kostić's video installation.

Phase Two of "Storefront Diva" will take place at The Flea Theater in Tribeca in June 2012. Kathleen Supové will perform a new composition by Joan La Barbara and Aleksandar Kostić will create a new video installation creating a fusion of past and present.
