Superhero Alter Ego takes the idea of using social media and comic books, satirising superhero archetypes to create a surreal, escapist narrative.
Superhero Alter Ego is Holly Rush’s experimental work in progress, fusing movement styles of Waacking and contemporary dance. This project was originally inspired by Superhero comic book storytelling. Holly has been researching the genre and was particularly interested in the different representations of Superheroes and how they have become a new modern mythology.
Now Holly is taking inspiration from Julian Gray's exhibition Stories For Us and the portrayal of his comic characters to experiment the physical storytelling, inspired from his stories. Stories For Us has inspired Holly to look further into the research of comic book storytelling and what can be done more for more diversity in storytelling.
The performances will take place at 13:30 and 15:30 and will last approximately 20 minutes each.
This is a list of some very talented people who have put in their own flavour to this project. As a collaborator, other artists practises and ideologies is something I value.
