Stem highlights the vulnerability of the body, a seminude body that, in this case, interacts with a trunk that has been cut. In a relatively restricted space, Stem operates ample movements and intense transformations to enter into a dialogue with the public. Stem then, as in any other Butoh-inspired piece, conducts important modifications and variations that go well beyond the body of the performer and affect the spectators as well. It establishes, in sum, a two-ways conversation between the performer and the public in which varied affects circulate.
