Cat Velez - 21st Sept 2015

Alan Masferrer has directed this wonderfully atmospheric representation of the different stages in human life, employing expressive choreography, elegant projections and lighting set-ups. The video doesn't shy away from its representative nature, showing bits of the studio and the circular track, adding an interesting theatricality to the work. 

ALAN MASFERRER:

"Conceptually, the video is an abstract and personal approach to the stages of life: conception, pregnancy, birth, childhood, youth, adultness, oldness and death. This idea is complemented by the circular mise en scène, simulating a continuous trip that turns on the different sets that represent each stage, showing that life can be seen just as a representation, a simple play.

"Coincidentally the actress, Anna Hierro, one of the most talented contemporary dancers from Spain, was 4 months pregnant when we asked her to appear in the video. Definitely that fortunate coincidence gave an additional dimension to the essence of the project."
