How do we define ourselves in the context of others and the outside? How does our image of identity align with, or differ from, how we are perceived? Through playful and mercurial forest creatures the dancers embody evolving traits and unpredictable qualities, resisting stereotypes, and offering a portal into different parts of our selves.
