break free of her cocoon; spreading the silk threads after emergence
to evoke the delicate wings of a butterfly. Her metamorphic birth then
gives way to two other butterflies who soar into the sky on a strong
forest vine. Maxim Kozlov and Inna Mayorova (from Russia) perform a
slow, sensual dance of trust and love, wrapping themselves and each
other in a single Spanish web rope. After their performance, we meet
up with the Foreigner again as he continues his search for his Ovo.
