Performance, movement, sculpture and installation.
How does the physical modification of our body (through clothes, shoes or objects) change our attitude and behaviour?
In this piece we centre on the idea of balance using special sculptural shoes, a particular “high heel”. The different models each represent different types of behaviour: she in the red sandal is a pleasant character; the aggressive one wears the rough boots; and the helpless one sports the high-heeled 'prosthetic' boots.
The peformance is initially set up like a battle with the scenery being destroyed by the end. Carefully choreographed, it follows a strict order, which eventually dissolves into chaos.
The performance questions behaviour structures and mechanisms that might be established in different kinds of relationships, potentially between good and evil. Using the physical limitations and conditions as a metaphor for inner limitations, conflicts that may cause suffering or pain. The sexiness of the imagery is at odds with the brutality of the instruments being worn or by which the performers are surrounded.
