The Future Queen of the Screen is a narrative set in the Dead Sea, Peckham and a cyber desert. The story centres on 2 hip-hop girl dancers who engage in real and online dance battles. The girls both “practice” for the dance competition but also perform live, within the narrative of the video. Notions of performance and practice become visually divided into super-slick HD moving image and bad-quality phone video footage, referencing body language and every-day performances and gestures. In a parallel territory, a girl has cheated on her boyfriend and is floating in the Dead Sea. After unintentionally uploading their videos to a hostile website, the dancers are forced to escape to the desert dunes of the Dead Sea, a place representing guilt, imagination and fantasy, where they join the space of the girl who has been cheating on her boyfriend.
