Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project is an international art exhibition and
durational performance that harnesses the power of ritual to bring together women
from across the world in a unified release of old patterns that no longer serve their
personal growth.

Over the past three years, women have contributed pieces of fabric inscribed with what they wish to let go of. In a series of meditative performances, Schnitzler has stitched these testimonies together into a room-filling skirt, representing the global feminine voice.

The project will culminate in a ritual dance performance in which Schnitzler wears the skirt radiating with these women’s collective energy, then publicly destroy it in a powerful symbol of release and letting go.

As a woman, what do you wish to let go of? We invite you to PICK A PIECE OF FABRIC and WRITE IT DOWN!

Bring your fabric to Empire Outlets between February 19, 2024 – March 2, 2024. Tales of a Phoenix will be located on Level 2 across from Old Navy.
