DOWN THE BACKSTREETS (DEAD END/YOGA)


The large-scale 16-part series by Moussa Kone is based on a study of animal training handbooks. In this series, Moussa Kone engages with the way circus animals are trained in comparison to the physical conditioning undergone in dance training and goes on to apply these to conditioning in a social context.
