The Point at Which it Last Made Sense
-A performance using dance, sound and digital media to explore vulnerability and challenge conventional representations of beauty
SDNA designed the videos for The Point at Which It Last Made Sense – a performance using dance, sound and digital media to explore vulnerability and interrogate the restrictive norms of beauty that dominate mainstream marketing and the media. The piece was performed by paralympian James O’Shea and dancer Rosa Vreeling, the music composed by Alessandro Bosetti, and directed by Robin Dingemans & Nick Bryson. The piece has been performed in many venues including Sadler’s Wells, The Laban Centre and at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
Through delicate use of movement, words and music along with effective imagery and film displayed on a floor to ceiling screen, the performance shows while beauty may exist in objective isolation, once a context is applied, it may be made ridiculous, even dangerous in its power to project inappropriate meaning.
