THE REALM OF NOTHINGNESS

DIRECTOR / Kathy Rose
BRAND / –
YEAR / 2014
COUNTRY / United States
RUNTIME / 5’40”

This non-narrative  video is a dance of puppet-like figures, and mesmerizing forms, accompanied by percussive rhythms.  It is a magical spectacle portraying a mesmerizing world  in which figures flow and drip in a universe of their own as they proceed to a greater void. The artist, enraptured by what she sees, sheds her iconographic puppetry selves, and returns to a reality.
The Realm of nothingness continues my fascination with Noh and Japanese theater with their attachment to the supernatural; enchantment and all things strange.
