Short version of film performance/ dance Redrum 1998 Barcelona Music Esther Planas Luis Carbonell performing Esther Planas and Raquel Tapia.
Redrum is the first film by Esther Planas, shoot in 1998 in Barcelona, was part of a DIY self curated show that took place in a deserted old derelict house .
The topics of the show revolved around the psychic influence of watching too much Bad American TV ( something we watch as subjugated subjects) in Spain about psycho-killers. It mixed it all up with a notion of a subconscious around reminiscences of the best films that she had experienced of that genre. A mix of Twin Peaks, The Shining and Don't Look Now. The narrative of this two supposed lost girls who perversely perform and re-enact a series of crimes committed by a female psycho killer. The ideas about hatred between women where explored in a text that was published as part of the multimedia show.
Planas performance was largely influenced by her then current dance kind of practice in Barcelona, with the input in improvisation.
And the whole film breathes a surreal sense of humor about how much colonising our subconscious around what terrifies us is .
