The Ant Character

The idea for the Ant is that the dancer never touches the ground physically and has a very light touch. She is also without an identity and anonymous. The clothes she is wearing are made of found objects and the lack of hands is another layer of the missing identity (no fingerprints). Thinking about a character inspired by ants was challenging because they really lack individuality, ants are always in groups and colonies (except the queen of course) so placing a dome on the character turns her into something resembling a part of a group, a soldier almost.
Anyway, that was the thinking behind it, hope you guys like it :)
