What I Wish For

What I Wish For #Helen Schoene

What I Wish For explores the interaction between projected 2D animation and live performance with the aim of integrating the

3-dimensional body of the performer into a 2-dimensional environment. Animated black and white drawings interact with each other and the performer to create fleeting narratives of an associative character, gently taking the viewer on a dreamlike excursion into a familiar yet surreal world of fantasy. The piece is based on myths, fairy tales and biblical stories and draws on visual representations of these.

What I Wish For was created in collaboration with Ahmad Habash (animation) and The McCarricks (music) with support of a Space Bursary at Chisenhale Dance Space, London from January to March 2008.
