Performed by the model and performance artist Alex Bruni, "The Cage" is allegory of the ageing and social stereotypes attributed to it. The performance rebels against age biases, replacing them with passion, strength and beauty. Alex starts dancing with a heavy burden of clothes that limits her body and imprisons her mind. As she persists, the layers fall apart, until she is free.
