The artist-boxer investigates cases of one’s excessive fear while activating self-defense mechanisms, to survive and create visibility. Followed by the emergency speech, boxing embodies an independent, fearless fighter. While shouting ‘‘Pull your skirt towards your knees! Fight like a man! ’’, she gives the instruction both to the audience and herself, changing the contexts of the fight by boxing in different public spaces.

The artist-in-defense fights the commodities, fears, and masculinity, inevitably, within the cultural procedure, as the consequence of both laboring and existing in a capitalist system.
