The paper stop motion is based on the mythology of hare from various cultures and time periods, including primeval symbols of desire, reproduction, illogic, worship, purity and more, all of which reveal a spectrum of moral codes and psyche. Though a seeming anachronism, myth making in its new forms still pervades modern politics. The performer’s presence with the hare considers the human embodiment of the hare symbols, while the paper cut-outs are a means to dissect movement and to realign time.
