Ringmaster, My Sister (2009)

Directed by: Helena Astbury
Camera and Lighting: Jake Astbury
Format: Super8

Two twins, who look a lot like each other, decided to see who was best at being a ringmaster.
A surreal, vivid construction of movements, captured on Super 8 depicting a competitive and at times vicious streak of a female.

Archive sound surprises archive image in its play with repetition, mirroring or opposing the image.
An exploration of coded choreography, with particular attention paid to the female form re-telling the male domain of a ringmaster.
