Emovement is a solo improvisation performance that involves movement, emotions, vulnerability, mental health and painting. Through dance improvisation the performer would guide the audience to a movement journey through different stages and emotions. This project would be presented as a solo performance led by the following questions:

What comes first: emotion or movement?

How can we translate emotions into movement?

It is possible that dance allow us to be vulnerable and powerful at the same time?

The journey starts here:

To remain calm when our mind is a complete chaos. To learn to let go. To let go of the control.

Would you join me in this journey?
