The body is moved, in an overwhelming proportion, in a pragmatic way. The cynical was in which as a body is regarded in the society, as a resource, as an instrument of the rational mind, always moved by some practical action, hides it and limits it. The perspective of an invisible dance is an invitation to an intimate process, of interacting with the body, of exploring it in another mindset through various manifestations, within the reach of each one of us who owns a body, as matter in space and time. An abstractization of the body, a relief of an end, of immediate sense of action, in which it doesn’t take a social role. How easy is it to provoke the reality through movement?
