Utopia

10 minute video / 2021

Utopia documents an unscripted conflict between the artist and their partner. Following this, they use role-reversal and image theater exercises to re-enact the fight and feel into one another's performances of anger, hurt and tenderness. The video explores themes of authorship and power struggle in artistic collaboration, and the pain of studying one's shortcomings while continuing to have them. The video makes use of Psychodrama and Theater of the Oppressed techniques.
