The paper stop motion Lepus is based on the mythology of hare
from various cultures and time periods, including primeval symbols of desire,
reproduction, illogic, worship, purity and more, all of which reveal a spectrum
of moral codes and psyche. Though a seeming anachronism, myth making in its new
forms still pervades modern politics. The performer’s presence with the hare
considers the human embodiment of the hare symbols, while the paper cut-outs
are a means to examine movement and to realign cinematic time.
