What truly happens when you follow your darkness? Stemming from Giselle’s ‘Mad scene’, Anino is a dance on film that explores the Filipino Bisayan saying of “Sunda imong anino” – follow your darkness. A saying that exposes the truth of one’s dark reality. Personifying juxtaposition, manipulation and insanity, the work develops a personal and dystopian perspective of Giselle – an interrogation on deceit and the unpredictable nature of madness. Through this exploration, the artist makes a link to a moment of his life where ultimate hysteria occurred as a result of deception.
