Friend or Foe
The body becomes ambiguous and questionable as physicality morphs into different shapes, raising question of what constitutes the real body? This vision explores both utopic and dystopic themes within the cyborg tradition. The dancer is freed from her physical body but also constrained by it; her feet in one moment are metallic wings one moment and in another another twisting talons. She exists in a magical technological world, one that illuminates her body transforming her to an ethereal being free from gravities rules.
