Belinda de la Fantastica

Performance (2015)
Tomoko Mukaiyama & Mitchell-lee van Rooij

Concept

Belinda is a former top model now trying to be a pop star. Belinda lacks any form of talent, but since there are so many talentless people out there she might as well just give it a try. Belinda is not sure if she is a boy or a girl. Still deciding. Until that time she is a bottom trying to make it to the top.
With Belinda de la Fantastica Tomoko presents together with international dancer Mitchell-lee van Rooij a performance in which they bring the theatre to danceclubs. Belinda shows a vulnerable side of her character in a revealing monologue, but then starts dancing as if her life depends on it. With a spontaneous and flamboyant performance Belinda changes from a troubled persona into a star who spices up the dancefloor.
