Human to Eagle. Eagle to Dolphin. Dolphin to Human. Human to Goanna. Goanna to a Headland.

Shapeshifting has been happening since the beginning. Since the dreamtime. Or is it just stories from the past, from different mythologies, that have no place in today’s society.

Do we laugh at those who believe they are truly cats? Looking for a community.

What if you were a shifter? What if you were shifting for the first time? How would know what is your “real identity? And where would you go?

It’s about how there’s a monster inside me. It’s also about being scared.

It’s kinda like Howls Moving Castle. But different. Really different actually. Back to the monster – she’s on the loose.

Hungry. Drooling. Ready. 

She invites you in.
