Statement :

When the notes of beautiful music meet the bodies of two young dancers who dance following a choreography, which comes from a feeling, directing is easy. Just take back the sensations that come from this union. Starting everything from an author’s dream, letting two bodies dance where the soul is drawn from a choreography devised for this purpose, where lines are defined with polychromy, harmony is created. Simple alchemy that makes the feeling.
