Nire Nah's "Coeur Age"

 

Coeur Age is a phoenix story, a seance, a process of drumming up life in dead things and reinvigorating discarded objects by exploring them from new angles. This process is perhaps best exemplified by the show poster (pictured), which features a skeleton being freed from her skin as her ghost presents her with her own heart. This is death, rebirth and a beautiful and confusing mess of layers and ideas. At the end of the day, the poster, the show, the album and the body of work are all about learning to feel comfortable and whole in one’s own skin.”

In March of 2018, director Olivia Lilley and singer/songwriter Nire Nah began working on the creation of a live show capturing the world of Nire’s debut album, Coeur Age. Using meticulous staging, intimate yet bombastic lighting design, character development, dynamic costuming including a DIY rainbow lion's mane, and a full band featuring violin and body percussion, Pop Magic threw an album release show that completely sold out and took the audience on a rollercoaster journey through Nire's truth spewing, wacky universe. Pop Magic Productions worked with Nire to sculpt an identity and bring her multilayered persona to full vivid life.
