Mai practices Butoh, a dance inspired by Expressionism that originated in Japan in the 60’s. Butoh encourages performers to focus on their inner world and the cyclical nature of life and death. This perfectly suits Mai’s attraction to extremes. Death itself is as present in her mind as her life instinct is. She performs in a cemetery attempting to win over one on her recurrent hallucinations in her previous psychotic episodes: a black hole swallowing her into nothingness.
