SHINY is a multi-disciplinary performance that explores and challenges the beauty standards enforced upon women through the media of our culture. Created and performed by dance artist Kelly McInnes in collaboration with performers Maxine Chadburn and Rianne Svelnis.
SHINY explores the masking of the individual through the bizarre sameness of the beauty standard and magnifies the surreal, the grotesque, the bizarre,
and the mundane involved in the quest for ‘perfection’. SHINY reveals our bodies for what they are while magnifying the absurdity in arbitrary aesthetic.
Challenged to question their gaze, the audience is invited into a world of domestic beauty creatures.
