Fantasies of Boredom

Fantasies of Boredom

A dance & live music performance 2001

45 min

FANTASIES OF BOREDOM DUMMIES is a humoristic, serious and absurd representation of parents’ manipulation of their children and children’s manipulation of their dolls. It is a comment on the objectification of human beings. The work is inspired by Cindy Sherman’s images of fragmented dolls juxtaposed with the innocent dreams, scary games and fairy tales of children.

Sara gebran is an exception. She creates dance that is just as bitter as it is beautiful… She has again stirred up the dance audience with her rebelious photo-inspired body work.
