Artists and Dancers from different international backgrounds were performing a fox in this piece.
Their face and upper body was painted in white and Japanese traditional Fox mask was put on top.
Movement started from all of them scratching the wall with rhythm of the wood stick.
Each person performed an uncanny movements - 'fox', 'Human Shape of something' and 'Human' based on Butoh movements as such.
White smudged face was washed off by a bucket of rain water and in the end of the performance, I painted the wall with a bucket of water and these actions were repeated for 10 days.
