Takako Vs. Nine Lives is screen dance that uses a hybrid dance language and multiple camera perspectives to create parodic feminist interpretation of a three act balletic pas de deux/ three round wrestling match. The choreography, performed to an original score, draws upon vocabulary and aesthetic imagery from professional wrestling, classical ballet, comic books and Japanese manga. The action follows a mythological narrative, with characters behaving according to codes employed in Greek mythology, fairy tales and commedia dell’ arte. A battle unfolds, reflecting the interconnectedness of love and violence, beauty and monstrosity, strength and vulnerability.
