Plastic Bag[wip]

︎2017


The performative video installation ‘Plastic Bag’ draws from the postmodern concept of hyperreality, exploring shifting states of personal perception. Using semiotics, street dance and digital media, the performers in ‘Plastic Bag’ navigate the boundaries of their highly mediated worlds; pushing against their own desires, warped realities and their hyperreal existence. The ‘Plastic Bag’ video series utilises elements of street dance to reveal street culture’s capacity for education and its ability to incite new and challenging conversations with the larger public.

Plastic Bag crosses between film, performance, physical theatre and investigates how all these disciplines can be integrated together to live within a common formula.
