This year, I’m working with a great group of girls at my studio to create a piece entitled “Flaws” to touch on “conflicts of body image within one’s self”. We’re using a broken mirror as a prop to show how restricted and judgemental we can get on ourselves, and how to break free from the mirror to accept yourself.
I’m exploring this with my dancers on a deeper level than most of them have gotten- including journaling and discussing different ideas around body image and what the mirror can reflect.
I’d love to get into the heads of others who’ve had issues with body image, the mirror, and accepting themselves, and use that to help show that body image is something so many people deal with in different ways.
If you have a story you’d like to tell that I can use to bring this concept to life, showcase this issue and bring light to the beauty within everyone, and share with my dancers to contribute to their characters- please share it with me below!
