PREMISE

Caught in a room the protagonist, Clarice, unfolds a vision of her own identity through a mirror interrogator.

 

‘SHE’ is a cinematic adaptation of a solo dance performance work with the same name. The original performance work was created and performed by Dorotea Saykaly and premiered at 5éme Salle at Place des Arts in Montréal, Quebec in 2019.

 

Inspired by ‘The Passion According to G.H.’ by Clarice Lispector, the solo revolved around identity and doubt.

 

Manifested through movement, distortion and an interview with a phantom interrogator, the original work proposed looking at a questioning body through a female lens.

 

The cinematic adaptation of the original performance work arose during the first COVID lockdown in 2020 as a collaboration between Dorotea Saykaly and film director Emil Dam Seidel.
