‘The Resurrection of Osiris’ – Short film.

A short film created to showcase a new body of work, costume designs based on author Norman Mailer’s rendition of the renowned Egyptian myth ‘The Resurrection of Osiris’. This comes from his novel ‘Ancient Evenings‘.

Mailer saw the world as a kind of bleeding entity which runs simultaneously with the description of a dying body. This performance piece attempts to relay this statement, to find beauty in the scatological and merge the lines between life and death.
