Artists and Dancers from different international backgrounds were performing a fox in this piece.

Their face and upper body were painted in white and Japanese traditional Fox mask was put on top.

 

The movement started from all of them scratching the wall with the rhythm of the wood stick.
Each person performed uncanny movements -  'fox', 'Human Shape of something' and 'Human' based on Butoh movements as such.

A white smudged face was washed off by a bucket of rainwater and at the end of the performance, I painted the wall with a bucket of water and these actions were repeated for ten days.
