This performance brings to the stage the question of the identity of the female dancer-performer. It uses elements of contemporary dance, dance theatre, cabaret performance, live music and magic show.
To examine that, the authors create imaginary identities, Ms Fox and Ms Cat, who are joined by the mysterious Mr Eye on the piano.
They begin by questioning classic approaches to choreography, by dealing in an ironic way with Ravel’s Bolero, one of the ballet block-busters.
Diving deeper into the imagination and theatre as the space of magic, they perform with 100 miniature performer-statues, creating a vortex of shadowy performances.
In monologues, they deal with two different approaches to textuality on stage, using parts of Virginia Woolf’s last novel Between the Acts and Erica Fisher Lichte’s The Transformative Power of Performance. Identifying the performer as magician – entertainer, the authors use Macbeth Witches, but their magic dance is a classic Charleston. The end brings the performers back to their first identity – contemporary dance, and the dance improvisation, while the stage becomes a visually magical and wild place, drowned in dramatic and rich
sound.

L’opera porta sulla scena la problematica della condizione femminile nel mondo della danza e della perfomance, attraversando i linguaggi più disparati: danza contemporanea, teatro danza, cabaret, musica dal vivo e magia.
Per compiere questa analisi, gli autori hanno creato delle identità immaginarie, Ms Fox e Ms Cat, che sono raggiunte in scena da un misterioso personaggio, Mr Eye, che le accompagna al piano. Iniziano interrogandosi sugli approcci classici alla coreografia, facendo dell’ironia sul successo commerciale del Bolero di Ravel.
Abbandonandosi all’immaginazione e assumendo il teatro come luogo della magia, animano un centinaio di miniature, dando vita ad una vorticosa performance di ombre.
Durante i loro monologhi si occupano di due approcci al testo in scena, utilizzando testi dell’ultimo scritto di Virginia Woolf Tra un atto e l’altro e The Transformative Power of Performance di Erica Fisher Lichte. Identificando il performer come un intrattenitore magico, gli autori usano le Streghe del Macbeth, sebbene la loro danza magica sia un classico Charleston. Il ritorno alle identità originarie segna la fine dello spettacolo, in cui lo spazio performativo diventa un mondo magico e primitivo animato da danza contemporanea, improvvisazione e esplosioni sonore
