On stage I feel privileged, I move freely and enjoy this freedom of movement, I work in real time with the energetic, kinesthetic and affective transfer built between me and the audience, and what my body produces from a choreographic standpoint is influenced and resourced by the public's presence and this immaterial exchange. But what happens with the spectators' bodies from the moment they sit on their chairs and until they leave the room, while my body generates dance and engages in this transfer? Are these bodies active bodies, aware of themselves or passive, forgotten, ignored by their owners? What do these bodies feel and what would they do if they were not stuck in a theater convention and the chairs they sit on?

"dancing ring - one to one" proposes a body to body frame in which the presence of the other, the uniqueness of each meeting, the proximity, movement or lack thereof, silence or music provoke continuous and indeterminate exchanges and transformations on the two bodies' level, leading, eventually, to the emergence of an unrepeatable dance, a dance that belongs to that specific moment.

There's nothing you have to do on the dancing ring, but if you feel like it, you can do anything. For example, you can join me in movement if this is what your body feels like doing, following your impulses and reacting according to that. This being a body to body experience in which my view is almost completely obscured in order to facilitate the building of a corporeal relation outside visual contact, but also to ensure your intimacy and complete freedom, I encourage you to be more in your body than in your head.

In the beginning I invite you to sit on the chair you find on the dancing ring. We're gonna spend together between thirty five and fifty five minutes.
