“I had a flashback of something that never existed.”
Arms that weep and feet that escape; sad eyes longing for happiness. She throws her head back, spreads her arms wide and everyone can see how much she loves.
Expressing her feelings through movement she dances her heart out.
My MA project explores the theme of an unattainable love through the medium of film and photography, thinking of codes that express a certain feeling and taking on the metaphor of a rose to symbolise that with love inevitably comes pain. While the photographic part focuses on pondered sadness, the film is about breaking out of melancholy. Visualizing the emotional layer of a song through a dance performance inspired by Pina Bausch, I want to change the end of the thorn birds into a positive message: Sometimes you need to let go of a dream which never existed to find happiness. Farewell.
