Bodyperformance based on sensory appreciation and the inherent intelligence of our physicality. Generated through the dialogue with perception of self and other, this performance and training format for artists generates material for self-expression, communication as well as presentation. Different levels of perception are invited and used to access expressive performance contents. Empathy produces visions of coexistence based upon needs, understanding, togetherness, equality and co-creation beyond the reference of presentation and exhibitionism.
