This piece is an attempt to communicate and interpret thoughts through movement and sound with the use of improvisation.
What would thoughts sound and look like?
Thoughts come and go, they overwhelm you, they hunt you down, they posses you or they just pass by.
Is it possible to share some of this fragile and intimate moments on stage?

Improvisation solo where I want to research movement and thought.
Based on the idea that Improvisation is thinking in movement I want to explore how my body would express thoughts in time and space.
Can my body mirror my mind?
Live music and dance will cross-feed and influence each other’s movement and expression of thought, creating a dialogue between performer, musician and audience.
