Pushed (2018)


Pushed is a dance film and research project, created to culminate an Independent Study at NYU in Fall 2018. The film synthesises my interest in representations of gender and embodiment with art history, influenced by the work, life, and tragic death of the artist Ana Mendieta.  Pushed marries the fetishisation of violence against women to the destruction of Mother Earth and uses both choreographic and cinematic techniques to confront the ways in which trauma and gender inhabit the body.
