IMAGO by Travis Clausen-Knight & James Pett (United Kingdom)
In Psychoanalysis – an unconscious idealised mental image of someone which influences a person’s behaviour.
In Entomology – the final and fully developed adult stage of an insect, typically winged.
How do we alter ourselves when confronted with dysfunctions within a relationship?
What is the reality the body and mind are hiding?
What subtle presence reveals what we fear to say?
Co-choreographed and performed by partners Travis Clausen-Knight and James Pett, this dynamic dance film questions if we are what we say we are, or do we become reconstructed in the hopes to hold onto some idea of happiness? Are we willing to sacrifice so much of ourselves and forget our freedom just to savour what we believe to be love?
