Work with the colour black, more specifically with black on black, in different textures and tactility.

An investigation in what the brain process and produce subconsciously when you cannot see clearly, or decode something or someone instantly: what new images are created by your subconscious.

The rabbit is 3-dimensional that is something else than the convention of walls in a formation. The rabbit creates a resistance to the dancers, and affects the conditions: it functionally re-defines the space. The naivistic contextual understanding creates a mindfuck and lack of interpretation when scaled in size and being black.

To set an atmosphere of danger and darkness, and the juxtaposition of reality on a theatre stage.

The confetti is the only thing in colour in the piece.

Different silhouettes, but we do not work with the silhouettes as shadows or cut outs, what is made visible is textures in the materials (that is to say: matte-shiny, light-heavy).
There is always gender awareness in our work but this piece’s concept is truly able to underline it with the decoding of preconceived notions within clusters. A man with a long haired wig, a man in lace – how the mind handles expectations and fact.
