Encapsulation draws upon the inner world of a single character who moves, acts, struggles, evolves and transforms within a dream state. A hybrid of myth and science fiction, the work is manifested in embodied imagery, layering a hypnotizing, tangible and sonic environment.
The girl in the piece emerges into an ‘alternative dimension’. She manifests herself within that universe, shaping it, playing different roles in it, inventing and commanding situations. In this realm, she is completely by herself; unfolding multiple psyche – nature while inhabiting her environment. Throughout each scene and event, a narrative of growth and change unfolds, a game without frontiers which peaks to an “epic revelation”.
