Allow to Dance(LET DANCE)
Real security is not in the things you have, but in the things you can do without!
We are all, searching for something. We are looking outside ourselves, gasping greedily and rushing endlessly. We for satisfaction and short-term improvements which don’t really fulfill us. We remain empty and unhappy. Sometimes life stops us. And it stops us for a reason. That which at first seem devastating, later unveils itself as key to our growth.
Work in progress is dance experiment, embracing old capabilities and challenging new ones that arise after landmark moments in our lives when dance seems like the most distant and, impossible wish, hope, dream, memory. Dance and physical limitations act as totally incompatible; nevertheless, the memory of dance is still present even in limited body and it quivers relentlessly. We research physical limitations, surmount them together and search for our own movements through improvisation, we allow ourselves to dance.
