I am the Elephant by Josef Ka (FI/RU)

One morning Josef Ka woke from troubled dreams to find herself transformed, in her bed, into a beautiful elephant. ‘All my life I was dreaming about my own elephant. Since I was born in Siberia it was just a beautiful dream, so I decided to transform myself into my own elephant. Josef Ka makes this metamorphosis by destroying a number of large toy elephants while onstage. The project is about letting dreams come true – ‘and the price other creatures sometimes must pay for this.’Duration: 40 min .
