A piece of red string. Six different images which a body discovers and reconfigures in space and memory. To play "cat's cradle" you need only one string. And contact with someone else. How to go on?Cat's Cradle is a videoperformance produced in 2020, during social isolation that questions the possibility to continue creating images, fable about a possible future or even move artistically.
