Mortal Condition explores the persona of secondary female characters within the fantasy world of cartoons, movies and video games. These portrayals of the female gender are in a world of fantasy and entertainment. The lead characters in the world of gaming are traditionally held by iconic male figures. I wish to explore the internal logic of how these secondary female characters are bound by tradition and the possibility of breaking this mould by challenging the realm they are trapped in. I will seek to reveal the fascination with the power and prowess of leading characters by using these secondary female roles to challenge that of the lead hero.

“Brilliant and colourful movement compliments the soundtrack throughout, expertly timed and vividly representing the topic in both abstraction and literal imagery. The composition is wonderful keeping the audience on their toes with surprise at the outcome in various moments, the human content to a digital topic is starkly obvious. The shapes, movements and energy of the dancers constantly bring us back to the topic of discussion then suddenly lead us back to the mortal human state.”
