“I, too, overflow; my desires have invented new desires, my body knows unheard-of songs.”
― Hélène Cixous
MONROWE Magazine presents Shadow / Self – an exclusive film by Laura Scrivano. Featuring Elizabeth Blackmore and Geraldine Hakewill. SHADOW / SELF is a film project that combines dance, fashion and music to explore the darker side of the female psyche. Impressionistic, expressive and slightly surreal, the film illuminates the unspoken, unacknowledged and unwanted parts of ourselves in a visually evocative narrative.
INSPIRED BY THE S/S 2015 COLLECTION OF BIANCA SPENDER
