-7 suicides of a cat

why did I make this piece:

Seven improvisational scenes, each one a little suicide.

This is an autobiographical show, in which I make speak the “dancer” I am. In it I have done everything that you’re not supposed to do in your first show. It is about to force suicide to my own work. To be wounded by it. 7 cat’s faces are extinguished one by one (like videogames lifes) when each scene is finished.

On the scene there are some objects found in the streets. A microphone and my electrical cello.
