In ...it's only a rehearsal by zero visibility corp. and Ina Christel Johannessen the relation between the two dancers is unveiled to us through the physical expression, not through scenes or performative elements.

Is it the antique myth we are watching? Actaeon sees Artemis naked, after which she punishes him by transforming him to a stag, which is then killed by his own hounds. How do we reward or punish those who achieve to see our nudity?

...it's only a rehearsal by zero visibility corp. and Ina Christel Johannessen was supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs/MFA (travel grant/performing arts).
