Product details

The 5 Steps theatricalises the 5 elements of Taoism - Wood (), Fire (), Earth (), Metal (), and Water (). Each element is part of a holistic system that is assessed in terms of what it does rather than what it looks like. For instance, 'wood' symbolises birth, while 'earth' represents its inversion, a child giving birth to the mother. The 5 Steps is steeped in ritual ideas converging to express the correlation between the generative and degenerative processes that operate within nature and human life cycles.
