Nathalie Djurberg's The Demise of a Prestine Ballerina

Or at least that's what I got from the bio:
In I found myself alone (a stop animation), ...a young ballerina ...makes her way through a gigantic table set for tea. She climbs on cake, attempts to paint a white vase with chocolate sauce and builds a precarious staircase from sugar cubes.
As she dances her way through the enormous tea set, wrecking havoc, tension between the young girl and the objects builds. Without someone present to intercede on her behalf, the young ballerina is overpowered by the objects and drowns in candle wax dripping from candelabra. (finding her demise!)
Also in the exhibit are plasticine puppets, stop motion films, and drawings!
Seems pretty cool.. maybe I'll take the Mega Bus.. or the MVP Bus!
