The Guise, 2012, 5:00

“The Guise” is a piece inspired by the allegory of Plato's cave, a story that in one way or another essentially describes the human condition. In this allegorical tale people just like us are imprisoned from birth in a cave. They are attached to that life and they are afraid to change. The chains made these human beings completely bind to themselves and to their lives.
In “The Guise” we try to represent the city of London as the cave and the elastics that are attached to the performer are the chains. In the second part of the film the dancer is attached to a tree, which represents the roots that suspend us and make us what we are.
