From I saw you move across space

            Step by step the dancer explores momentum in movement as a narrative, like one word in the immense solitude of space. Works consisting of purposefully and instinctively selected sequences of motions and angles dealing with complex emotional states.

            From early recorded history, before the invention of written language, dance was a way of storytelling, conveying and processing delicate, transient lyrics of the mind without using words. It is an emotional healing ritual, sacred and ceremonial trough trance states. When words can’t be found and erratic human nature can only be expressed by movement of body and mind.
