The World
CONTRAST provides a unique atmosphere, where magic and the dream-like universe become blurred in a little girl’s imagination, as her life is turned upside down by her day-to-day existence and her parents’ separation. Her daily life and the challenges she faces with her mother are visually represented to convey the feelings of this 9 year-old girl.
CONTRAST borrows from film noir – from style and tone to the performance, we tell the story of a protagonist who is in a tight spot faced with difficult decisions. Sinister motives, infidelity, betrayal and jealousy are the essential elements of the genre, and are imaginatively reflected in the world of CONTRAST.
CONTRAST also takes a number of influences from vaudeville, a genre of performance and levity, full of drama and interspersed with poetic moments and songs that echo the thoughts of 9 year-old Didi. The cabaret ambiance envelops you in CONTRAST and has a very special place in Didi’s heart, as her mother is the star of the most famous venue in town, the Ghost Note.
