In this short interactive dance film, choreographer Alesandra Seutin invites us to explore the inner thoughts of a young black man as he reflects on the outside world’s perception of what he represents and the systemic pressures he endures on a daily basis.
Walk in his shoes by picking his pathway and contemplate what choices he has.
Run time is approximately 13 minutes.
The film includes creative captions and audio description that you can turn on or off.
‘Inside Head’ is inspired by the poem ‘Boy Breaking Glass’ by Gwendolyn Brooks, the first black female poet in the United States to receive a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
‘Inside Head’ is commissioned by The Place and Wellcome Collection.
