Lab : danse
- the sensibility to distance and proximity, as a generative technic for new forms of content and structure.
-how to create contexts for the reversibility of what we perceive as far, close and limit; center or periphery?
How to make a context for the enfolding of a living space that modulates asymmetries of presence and attention?
Let’s repetitively answer:
What is dance? Why I dance?
