Code Combat






I was told by a friend that he had a problem with the interpersonal relation due to a trauma. And I got to know he sometimes could not help but reflexively punching someone who suddenly touched him. What he told me made me want to actually and spiritually get close to him in order to overcome our risk of communication by boxing that he had played for long time.
This attempt was not based on defined rules, but was made as a physical conversation to reduce that. At the performance, I expected that the meaning of this performance might be represented by our fighting-code (unspoken rules) which came up through that. The restriction by ambiguity of the code was assumed in our relationship of trust to avoid having to take the risk of his panic while intentionally running the same one.
