“Moving and dancing in a group is what I love. Sharing and meeting the movements and vibrations that we emit and that allow us to communicate is what interests me. Listening, awareness and being attentive to the sensations of the body are, for me, essential notions of human well-being.
Taking care and being in the present moment are fundamental elements that I wish to bring to life through the Dance Against Violence workshops. The exchange with the women is rich and brings me back to my own perception of movement and my approach to dance. It is an intimate sharing that reminds me of the power of intention and imagination, the power and importance of both individual and collective experiences. I believe that together we discover the paths to peace and healing.
Slowing down, taking the time to listen, is what I wish for women. The daily practice of free expression and abstract movement has many virtues; when combined with imagination, I believe it contributes to a healthy society!”
