“Shape”- Embodying Places
This project is a nomadic platform of artistic research exploring the possibilities of impromptu dance as a tool to analyze the social fabric in different contexts. Through observations and social experiments in different places in the past few years, our group produced improvisational, site-specific creations focusing on body as a tool for local realities and social spheres.
