Performance / Live Art / Choreography / Dance for Screen


——

every action
comes from somewhere
and continues into next

there is no beginning and no end

every movement can tell us something
it can be used in several ways
and carry its own narrative

gestures and figures

spoken words

duplicated
mirrored
repeated
copied
