Sea change: displaced bodies and disembodied voices

We have produced a short animation on the theme and experience of otherness for the OthernessProject (Representations of the Other: Language, Body and Space in Cross-cultural Performances).

Thinking and imagining otherness as metamorphosis, we took as point of reference for the video Ariel’s song in Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Water becomes both death-bringer and transformance.  Here the voice, disembodied from the text, speaks from the possible perspective of the (alleged) drowning man, who becomes other, while sounds, music, and ideas of change are explored  at different levels. You can see our animation and the other projects here. (Scroll down to Otherness Stories for the video clip titled ‘Sea Change Movie’).
