This is the first time that I create a long solo work for myself. The work uses movement material from previous pieces, put in a new context, as well as new ideas and materials. Out of a dialogue with my own past and its implications on my life today and on the unknown future, my work has emerged, attempting to consolidate the times.
I dance since I can remember. The feeling is that dance chose me and not the other way around, is still prominently present in my life. I investigate my own being in movement, in every moment, and by doing so I fulfill myself.
This work crystallized slowly, without pre-planning, after spending a long while in an elongated nothingness, in liquid time, lost in thoughts about an unknown future. Layers of familiar defenses were shed off during this period in my life. A wide range of feelings had surfaced, carrying with it new cravings and longings and a desire to go back to the elementary experience of meeting myself by myself.
