The Leap (No Leap)The Fall of a Queen or the Taste of the Fruit to ComeJames Bonk in Matt Blackfinger

Hada’s work includes music videos, performance, and concert documentation, poetic narratives and animation. Characteristic for videos like The Fall of a Queen or the Taste of the Fruit to Come, a parable on the fall of the Berlin Wall, are her use of music and her odd sense of humor. James Bonk in Matt Blackfinger is a bricolage-like parody of the James Bond film Goldfinger, for which she animated mechanical toys in a coproduction with the Japanese American Toy Theater of London.
