Dance Within (EN - IT)
(Italian below / Italiano in fondo) In my experience, dance is not something "to do".
Dance is something that happens.
When we experience the rhythm in our breathing,
when we become aware of our inner space,
when we expand our perceptions
through our senses,
and we find a way to express all this
in the space we call "outside",
enjoying natural, fluid, effortless movements,
then, dance happens.
It's a "dance within", because every movement comes from inside, from the awareness of breathing, from that intrinsic "core" which comprehends our viscera, deeper muscles, nerves and spine, and give us a sense of our “self".
In this experience, harmony and flow meet strength and power in the pleasure of gestures which follow and express the true and original nature, energy and organization of the body.
Dance is my way to integrate all the opposites and perceive them as complementary. It is my way to feel that all is One.
When I dance, I let movements develop coming from my "core" through limbs, exploring the space around, grounding and orienting my body and senses in it, moving "my" space through it, interacting with it, breathing and bringing it inside...
Until the moment in which there is no more "inside" and no more "outside", but just the awareness of a moving space. And of new dimension of Being.
Dedicated to M° Philiph B. Beamish, who illuminated the path leading me to dance.
Nella mia esperienza, la danza non è qualcosa che "si fa".
La danza è qualcosa che accade.
Quando sperimentiamo il ritmo nella nostra respirazione,
quando diventiamo consapevoli del nostro spazio interiore,
quando espandiamo le nostre percezioni
attraverso i nostri sensi,
e troviamo un modo per esprimere tutto questo
