Two Scenes is set in a future of post-humanity and post-apocalypse. Blorkra, a human/fish hybrid and lonely survivor, emerges from the water to search the shoreline for companionship. Haunted by vague memories, she's driven by a mixture of desire, curiosity and shame. As she grows disoriented, she imagines her death at the hands of the evil Boat People.
Two Scenes From The Life of Blorkra was commissioned in 2009 as part of the underwater opera, You Who Will Emerge From The Flood, which was written, directed, and performed by Juliana Snapper and Andrew Infanti. Various productions of it were mounted in Manchester, UK; Porto, Portugal; Geneva, Switzerland; and Warsaw, Poland.
Infanti and Snapper provided the original music for this video. Brenna Williams plays Blorkra in live action, and Elizabeth Bonaventura is the model for my animated sequences of Blorkra. Jennifer Macdonald was my Technical Consultant.
