Realized with the support of Coordinamento Danza Piemonte – La Danza in 1 minuto




What happens when we suspend all our actions to question them? What do we think about before performing a new gesture or encountering someone else? By making visible the immaterial layer of thoughts, the video aims at revealing the inner dimension of the dancer and at investigating the relationship between stream of consciousness and flow of movement. Overcoming the paralysis of doubt, we can enter the state of flow, where there is no need for interruptions to reflect, because we are so involved in our actions that they follow each other in a natural way.
