From The Birth of the Venus by Sandro Botticelli emerges a strange and unique world where we explore the human form: its beauty and its strangeness.


The video design for this dance performance explores the destructive and transformative relationship we have with our bodies through live-feed and intimate animated close-ups of the painting.
