Boys Clap, Girls Dance
Animated short, 10 minutes, 2022.
Boys Clap, Girls Dance is a 10 minute long animated short about, Girl, a pre-teen who exists in an artificially constructed world. A pair of omnipotent hands assembles and dismantles the spaces around her. She's aware that something is changing but isn't sure how much of it is coming from within her or from the circumstances created for her. Will this external power always exist to influence her actions and desires? Is she living for herself or for others? We follow Girl as she moves throughout her day, navigating the obstacles, people, and places, that are always in constant flux and that she may learn, are ultimately dictating what she knows about her life and doesn’t.
