What is a doll and how and when does it appear?

The experiment was based on the idea of the doll as a second skin, and that if we provide ourselves as a canvas for it, the doll could appear anywhere on our body. Using body fragments based on casts of our own and each other’s bodies, we explored the transition and encounter between doll and human. It is a play with body and doll and the relationship between the two: The relationship, tension and physical interaction between the living performer and the “dead” body parts.
