Laura Eldret's 'Fought' recreated a boxing match, in an art gallery, as a piece of art. I played the part of the ring girl, in various animal guises: round 1 - dog, round 2 - horse, round 3 - eagle. I got proper training from the referee who was the real deal, and he showed me how to strut my stuff - easier said than done with those huge animal masks covering my eyes.
'Fought was intended to bring the spontaneity of a fight into collision with the drama of a predetermined situation. Fought was intended to be boxing stripped of aggression and transformed into an act that resembles a dance or choreographed performance. The professionalism of the boxer's training meant that the punches seemed real.'
