Dancing with Duality

'Dancing with Duality' is a mixed media art project that uses film, photography and interview to explore the concept of dualism.

We focus on the conflict that women and marginalized folks can experience when attempting to carve out their own path and how the pressures and expectations of society conflicting with your self-identity can evolve into dualism.

Director Statement

The female experience is a constant grapple with duality.

It’s an onslaught of spoken and unspoken rules. Do this, but not like that. Do that, but not like this.

We understand that duality in all its forms exists ubiquitously in one’s professional and personal lives, especially when grappling with identities formerly seen as living in opposition. So while understanding that duality exists is a step in the right direction, how can we better understand and lead with it in mind? How can we help shape the future of an industry that accepts people for their whole and intersectional selves?

Learning to embrace all sides of ourselves in a world that may have different expectations, can feel daunting. But everything that has been learnt, can also be unlearnt.

Our film looks at dissecting and exploring the limitations that are put on people in the workplace, and how best to advocate for change and achieve great success in spite of the societal biases that still exist. We start with an honest conversation, enabling action to emerge, and accepting our role in shaping what this looks like for future generations.
