The performer stand naked behind a semi-circle formed out of small clay bowls. The bowls are filled with carbon pigment. Little by little she gets people from the audience and places them in front of the bowls. The people colour her body with the coal until it is completely black. Then she faces a single person and holds a double-sided mirror between their faces fixing the mirror on a string. She repeats the action with all the chosen people. When all the mirrors are fixed in a chain she lays on her belly and pulls them to the end of the space. Meanwhile, a fire is burning in a metal bucket. After reaching the fire she hangs the chain of mirror against the wall and burns a lump of her hair.
