The dancer’s body is able to translate what he hears from movement, and his mind to dissociate from it to observe and put itself at its service. I realize that very often performance and live art serves an expression and a subject. Through my experience in Chinese martial arts and contemporary dance, in my work, movement becomes the subject and the action comes to support the intention of the movement while the narrative sense creates itself. The performer becomes the channel or the raw material of the work.
From this initial concept, the control of the body, the quality of movement and the intention of the performer work in depth and in full awareness.
I seek the right and authentic movement for each of the dancers and accompany them in the search for who they are, what their body have memorized or experienced and what they really mean. This mobilizes muscle energy, relaxation, flexibility, isolation, mobility and all the techniques that allow you to build a new narrative by simply creating a movement.
I draw inspiration from the internal and external energies so present in the Chinese martial arts to instill a dynamic movement that is sensitive, thoughtful and deep. We dissociate the goal, the intention and the action to make them even better live then in unison. The collaboration of energies and the precision of movements give them meaning and increase their accuracy, their wisdom. The notion of time and rhythm are crucial because they too come to support the movement thanks to the intention that is put into action. So, the dancer can dive with more freedom and apprehend risk taking in his own questions to emancipate himself from his body and creative memory.
The body listens to movement more deeply than the mind, which is constrained by logic and experience. The passionate and sustained practice associated with the rigor of listening to one’s body offers us a form of constancy and clarity in each movement, then awakens the magic of dance and gives it an increased sense.
