Loosely based on the 1922 novella Lady into Fox by David Garnett, Mrs Fox is a story that looks at the relationship between a young husband and wife. They live a seemingly content life until one night when Sophia falls violently ill. Tim, now confronted with the reality that his wife is transforming into a fox tries to adapt to living with his wife in this new form. We follow the couple as they navigate their way through this new relationship, seeing the impact one person can have on someone. This performance of the text is a merging of dance and theatre. Exploring the physicality and range of emotions of humans and fox, through dance.
