My idea of



The dancer opens her gaze into the body
and sends this reception into the world.

These expressions are embodied by a new language.

This language can be heard by one's own words,
seen with one's own eyes,
felt with one's own soul
and recognized by one's own memories and thoughts.


The dancer participates in the story of the spectator.
The spectator participates in that of the dancer.


Dance is giving forms to feelings.
Dance brings spheres in spaces.
In dance our stories become shared stories.
