The Art of Defining Me (2013)
15min · Short, Comedy · 1 May 2013
In a tick box society where identity has become a commodity, this new dance film by Seeta Patel, Kamala Devam and Maria Akesson sees them take a humorous look at how they as artists are influenced by the expectations and definitions placed upon them. Who puts us in these boxes? Society, institutions, individuals or ourselves? Not a simple retaliation, the work observes and comments upon how we embody these expectations to find a certain safety and solace in them, almost enjoying them. But what happens to us when the box becomes our home? Choreographers/dancers Seeta Patel and Kamala Devam join filmmaker Maria Akesson to create a three-part film using dance, physical theatre and original script and sound design.
