Year Of The Hare
Dance & Animation Performance
The performance is composed of four studies of boxes: a man in a cell-like room with a television, a woman trapped within the drawers of a cabinet, a TV astrologer drowning in photos and letters from his viewers, and an animator who manipulates miniature figures of the man, the woman and the astrologer inside a small box. All these elements are interspersed with animation and live dance on stage, on which the room, the cabinet, and the small box are situated.
"Let's imagine that everyone had a box and inside each box there was what we shall call a 'beetle'. No-one can ever observe the contents of another's box, yet everyone claims they know what a beetle is — merely from observing their own beetle." (Ludwig Wittgenstein, "Philosophical Investigations").
