Fox In The Mirror: A Concert explores human vulnerability and frailty through a narrative of animated ceramic and plastic figurines. Structured in movements like a symphony, the playful yet haunting work incorporates references to failed marriages, torture, and totalitarianism. It includes a moving score written and recorded by Porter's long-time collaborator, Sylvia Meyer.
