When I was in Tawain, I used to practice some Kung-Fu. I thought about a close relationship that may exists between this sport and performance. Kung-Fu requires a perfect control of the mind and the body I never reached. Then, the aim was not to replay what I tried to learn, but to play with the Kung-Fu imaginary.

I attached two bamboos to my head, and tried to balance myself while I was moving in the street. The two sticks becomes stilts as much it handicap me. And moves are airy as much they are heavy.
