While working on creation of this piece, we used a special technique which is formed by synthesizing contemporary dance technique and a study of the anatomy of animals - Zoo technique. The emphasis is on the ability of the human body to change its architecture. Dealing with a different body and a different skin through the anatomy of the cat requires a deep awareness of bodily connections. Skin, clothes and fur dictate different paths of performing while contemplating bodly presence on the stage on a cognitive, emotional and a semantic level.
