Production Details / Press Releases
“This is a dance solely for dance’s sake.
Dancing is my own way to discipline myself for reaching to my certain essence in my mind.
So I’ve been concentrating on my body itself as a bowl holding my whole being.
Above all, I trust my body.
I disavow the choreographical concept in dance. Dance is the most free form ever imagned.
I try to be true to the freedom of the primal dance and I try to train myself to dance all movement as an art,
a performance and a complete, single sequence dance.
I wish to be free from being conscious of my dancing self.
I pray for the complete freedom that I experience while I dance.”
