CLOUD CUCKOO LAND

The created object symbolizes the Cloud Cuckoo Land, with reference to The Birds by Aristophanes. Like a white cloud above the performer's head, it refers to an idealistic state where everything is perfect. The short performance explores the relationship between set and performer and shows how scenography can be used as a part of choreography. It tells a story about the person who is perfectionist and lives in her dreamland trying to create an ideal/perfect life. During the performance the hanging object falls lower and lower like perfectionism, and dreams take over the place pressing the dancer to the floor, affecting her movements. Contemporary dance elements are used to criticize perfectionism; unlike other dance genres, contemporary dance is not idealistic, but reveals reality as it is. Such dance elements, as an opposition to perfectionism, help reveal the story and conflict between performer and set.
