Scenic construction from the relation of a space and a body that inhabits it. The mediating place of this zoomorphic transposition, is crossed by movement and air, where an object, a skin, subject of a metamorphosis process is impregnated with life, generating a state of vitality.
The process follows the study about Japanese Folklore and Classic Dance Theatre (Aomori, Buyo and Noh) combining Japanese Mythology themes with symbolic and funerary gesture’s vocabulary.
Performance inspired by Haruki Murakami’s romance, “A Wild Sheep Chase”, that develops the possibility of a sheep choosing a human body as its immortal residence.
