In this short play marked by the stamp of originality and humour, the metamorphosed dancer in constant unbalance changes into one mysterious Thing*, to use the words of Cummings to describe Josephine Baker. 
Vera Mantero uses both to question the perception of the dancer by the audience.

* What he really said about Josephine: “one mysterious Thing, neither primitive nor civilised, or beyond time, in the sense that emotion is beyond arithmetics”
