A background conceptual video I created for the pole dancing artist Melina Boukouvala. This is a story of a girl who has lost her identity between reality and dreams. She is lost in “time”, where she is trying to find her own/personal truth, between what her eyes see and what her body feels. She expresses all her inner struggles (her soul is a battlefield, a continuous war between conscious and unconscious). melancholic feeling every morning, when she wakes up from a dream. She wants to capture “time”. Her dilemma is reflected everywhere; in her dance and in the space she occupies. She will realize that what she sees has already happened and she is trapped in that world of reality and dreams, unless or until she finds the exit.
Melina has won the first place in the category “Pole Theatre” at the Athens Pole Dancing Competition, Athens 2016.
