Dance Film: THE VEIL OF ACUMEN, 3min., Canada, Dance

74b0482472 poster

Dance video with a focus on questions around identity and its fluidity, meaning that culture and popular media create a define imprint on people’s unconsciousness and the way we see ourselves and others in the world

In this piece is a visualization of how people see others in “a package.” We all have our own bias and ideas around chosen cultures and ideas which are more likely have been formed through the influence of popular media, socio-political context and most importantly person’s surrounding. When a person says he is coming from from a particular country, people tent to immediately transfer their personal associations and ideas on to him/her and create an invisible “shell” of stigmas and stereotypes.
