I have been considering for my final project a video adaptation of a dance piece that I have been picturing for several years. However, now that it has the possibility of coming to fruition, naturally it's already changing. I have always been interested in the fantastical and elaborate, and while that is still true for my vision of this project, I am considering taking a less decorated approach as far as setting. The main issue that I believe I am centering around is that of identity. What if instead of having "Alice" walking around in a fantasy land, she is wandering the streets of downtown, a Halloween party, and a night club in addition to gardens and natural bodies? Is she still dreaming? Am I still interested in exploring identity through a dream? Thoughts?
photo shoot by Annie Leibovitz has always been a source of inspirations
as she has incorporated the character of Alice into a modern, yet still
dreamy, setting. The costuming is incredible as is the interpretation
of the actual text to the recreated characters. Please also note the
fabulous picture where the male-queen is yelling "Off with her head!" I
just realized the queen is a drag queen. FABULOUS!
