Tight space

Have you ever tried to hide someplace small so you couldn't be seen, like in a closet or underneath a bed?

This woman is trying to fit into a tiny space for the opposite reason. She is a contortionist and a street performer.

A contortionist is someone who can move and stretch his or her body in ways that most people can't. Most people whose legs and arms are as long as this woman's could never fit into a small plastic box.

Look at the faces of the people in her audience. They look amazed, curious and concerned. How would you feel if you saw a woman on the street folded into a plastic box?
