The Myth

The Myth

Everyone can relate to the Myth of Sisyphus. Sisyphus was condemned to an eternity of pushing a boulder uphill, only to see it reach the top and roll down. This is the mythological representation of the daily grind, the struggle we all feel. In The Myth,  Gina Cunningham use a spectacular natural environment as a setting for dance moves and classic yoga poses in a post-modern interpretation of life’s futility and the path to acceptance.
