Schouten’s Romeo Is Bleeding can be considered a video revue. Playing the main female role, she wanders across a series of scenes, and the world is condensed on animated and abstracted backdrops. In an additional work, this principle is increasingly complex: (para) documentary scenes are combined with animated scenarios, at issue here is always showing that “adventure and power are not a male privilege.”
