Ocean, water ripple, sound, siamese search a unity. A dancer goes on a journey in search of a body vanished from the radars of consciousness, seeking its faded memory. Under the broken walls and ruins, raises the misty words of the body.
For the last years, I lived, danced, and traveled alone throughout France. The body is like another self, and it is always beside me. It is a storage place for memories. Every moment, the emotions and feelings are collected in layers of skin, bones, and muscles. I started entering a dialogue with myself: shooting and recording my body, observing it, and investigating the relationship between body and soul.
