Dinosaurs And Sea Hawks

| Activism, Choreography, Collaboration, Gifts, Street Art, video

(2014) Video, short film.

Inspired by creating performance gifts for my schizophrenic mother ‘Dinosaurs and Sea Hawks’ is another gift in my ongoing performance work. The dinosaur mask is intended as a reminder of childhood and quite literally a mask to hide from the harsh reality of the world through my mother’s eyes. Directed, filmed and edited by Linas Phillips. Written and acted in by Ezra Dickinson. Sleeping under a bridge is a man and his dinosaur mask. Waking up, he walks into the heart of the city and puts on his mask. A friend, a stranger, a kindred soul emerges and the mask is passed off and traded. The man watches and then walks away with a Sea Hawks hat.
