Some details about my grad project. Coming in June!
Mirror Staging the Seeing Place
Mirror Staging the Seeing Place is a choreographic project that exploits the mechanics of image construction within the theatrical apparatus to reconfigure cultural representations that are embedded in the female body. Dually informed by a practice-based research and an 18 month-long intellectual courtship with feminist psychoanalytic theory, the project centres around the figure of the dancer. Working with a movement base generated through a mimetic reproduction of North American pop-cultural icons from the late 20th century and gender-specific stereotypes, the solo dancer performs a series of deconstructive actions which increasingly mutate the original forms, in order to revise (re-vision) how the female body is perceived.
Presented by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.
