Ghost Dance (2019) Using as base Thomas Edison’s 1894 filming of the Sioux American Indian ‘Ghost Dance’ the piece explores dance as protest, dance as a form of resistance against injustice and the imposition of foreign powers, such as the 1894 Sioux Indian Ghost dance used as resistance against the white settlers in North America and protest dances in Gaza , South Africa, Peru, Jerusalem, Armenia among others. The piece explores power, resistance and the clash of cultures using hand drawn animation and archival footage combining this way the tactile and the digital touch exploring the cosmic, the magical, technology and politics.
