Project

Marikana Project is a video composed by 13 videos which follow, and, at the end, the 13 videos goes together. The music is of Claude Debussy. The theme focuses on racial identity. Two black race dancers, a man and a woman, interact through various parts of the body: faces, arms, hands, legs, feet; and are immersed in the fog. The color of their skin contrasts with the white of the fog that alludes at the white color of the skin of the western, for a reflection on the universality of the humanity, regardless of any races belongs. Furthermore the man and the woman, in their union, are the symbol of the Creation that unites all the living being on our Planet. The dance is sensual in the relationship between masculine and feminine. Wanting to subdivide the human body in various parts means representing the innumerable possibilities that the man has in the comunication with the others, that are different in the meetings between people.
