A series of stills and animated dance solos exploring the featureless female form and disembodiment in contemporary dance practice.
Obitsu Solos’ explores the female form as an object in contemporary dance aesthetics via anthropomorphic action, commenting on physical control and facelessness as a means of objectification.
No hair, eyes, mouth, obitsu has no gaze, no voice, existing in stasis without the animator, yet still strangely compelling, such is our conditioned fascination with the female as object.
Extending a body of previous live work that creates subversive female identities, communication and actions.
Developed at Bundanon Trust Artist Residency in 2012.
