En Puntas by Javier Perez

Javier Perez's performance art short made me nothing short of anxious. A lovely ballerina attempts what would appear to be impossible: Stand and even dance a little on the points of knives. Yep, attached to her pointe shoes are knives, and not only that, but she does this on top of a piano. A metaphor for the human condition, she gradually becomes more and more exasperated in her quest for perfection. The scraping and cutting of the knife against the piano top and her frustrated outbursts create nothing short of anxiety in the viewer.
