"Flora, Forgotten & Forgiven"
Flora, represented by two female dancers, explores the “life world” of Damian Kapojos sculpture, as a modern day version of “Garden of Earthly Delight”. Amidst the struggle centered around madness - sanity, morality - sexual sin, Eastern and Western identity roots, Flora is in search for forgotten places. Places that offer her clarity, relieve and forgiveness”. She brings the “life world” of the sculpture closer to the audience, in an organic movement sequence of attachment and de-attachment, with a wink to classical Indian dance which lends itself for exploring the emotional intensity and blurred lines between sanity and madness
