Try Till Die /
2011, Mini Dv, 5’10’’, color
The mermaid is torn between two worlds, land and sea, its capabilities and its ambitions, it is lost between madness and despair.
The stimulus for video dance was an audition, this is a moment when the performer sees his ambitions and abilities are valued, for some can mean happiness, but for others this may be a time of deep depression.
