creating the Environments of Embodied Freedom
I'm a dance artist and performer, recently dedicated to research the topic of HOW can we create the SPACES of embodied freedom inside and outside of our bodies.
I'm working with INFORMATION and STATES, filling the existing environments and creating the new ones with the sense of WHOLENESS and INTEGRITY.
