>> BODIES I HAVE IN MIND AND HOW THEY CAN CHANGE TO ASSUME NEW SHAPES << [Ovid, Book 1, 1-2.]
The piece is a visual abstract based on a selection of ancient mythologies written down by roman author Ovid. His book contains various stories about diverse transformations, metamorphoses from human beings into stones, animals, plants and even into the other sex. As these changes can be read as transforming your consciousness, being in touch with the divine as well as nature and its powers, they are still relevant and beautiful today. In Meta_Morphoses I try to realize visible and invisible transformations, make them perceptible through dance, visual images, sound and performance. I want to capture magic and celebrate life with both light and shadows. Let´s create emotional landscapes!
