Borrado - an animation inspired by The Indian Queen

Directed by Yaniv Garber, Borrado takes inspiration from Purcell's The Indian Queen, which tells the story of the initial confrontation between Europeans and the Mayans of the New World. Yaniv Garber says of his animation: "What inspired me the most about the Indian Queen were the elements of colonisation, and how they bring upon feeling of isolation and powerlessness in the protagonist. "I wanted to take that power dynamic present between oppressed and oppressor in the context of colonisation, and push it into quite a visceral, literal place." About the ENO and Central Saint Martins collaboration: Inspired by a visit to Terry Gilliam's Benvenuto Cellini at the London Coliseum, students from Central Saint Martins’ MA course in Character Animation created short fiction animation films in response to productions in ENO’s Spring 2015 season. The students took their inspiration from characters, plot/subplots, the specific direction and design concepts of the productions we are staging, and the socio-political context in which the operas were written. All 40 students submitted proposals and 10 pitches were selected to be made in groups. The aim of the project was to engage young creatives with an artform they had had little exposure to, and to make visible career opportunities for using their animation skills within video design for performance.

Cihuapilli - an animation inspired by The Indian Queen

Directed by Diana Garcia, Cihuapilli takes inspiration from Purcell's The Indian Queen, which tells the story of the initial confrontation between Europeans and the Mayans of the New World. Diana Garcia says of his animation: "My idea was to tell the story of the invasion of the Americas through the eyes of an Aztec Woman, based on reality. "My main focus in the film was colonisation and the imposition of Christian Religion in South America. The main character ‘Cihuapilli’ takes us to a journey about her culture and the pain of losing it."

The Wheel of Life - an animation inspired by Purcell's The Indian Queen

Directed by Tatiana Alisova, The Wheel of Life takes inspiration from Purcell's The Indian Queen, which tells the story of the initial confrontation between Europeans and the Mayans of the New World. Director Tatiana Alisova says: "This film was inspired by Mayan mythology, in which zoomorphs - half-humans, half-animals - always played important roles. According to Codexes, they were the first generation of creatures made by gods; they lived their normal lives in the Underworld before humankind came to the Earth." By bringing the original plot into a surreal context we aimed to give the story a magical twist, bringing to the fore the clash of cultures and the personal drama of the main heroine. I’ve being always interested in Latin American and pre-Columbian culture. In my background research for this film, a couple of books I found particularly interesting were ‘The Blood of Kings’ where I stumbled upon the most full explanation about zoomorphs and their everyday activities, and ‘Mexico and American modernism’ by Ellen Go Landau, which in a way inspired me to take a route to patterns and experiments with brushstrokes.
