kokoro-idiogramma inverted



‘Kokoro’ is a single Japanese word that we can translate as ‘inner self’ but that literally embraces two words, which are ‘mind’ and ‘heart’.
The solo is a personal research of the ‘unicity of the self’. An inner journey that became physic path through the space. The naked body, with it’s specific architecture, is exposed, transfigured, becoming a poetic medium; letting emerge elements that belongs to an imaginary word. These images as roots of a collective consciousness , sublimate in a personal story that becomes, through the scene, a collective experience.


“Moving with sustained precision, she takes on sculptural, organic shapes. Spider fingers creep across the landscape of her back, while sounds of wind and stones call sand dunes to mind. Larva-like, she writhes on the floor, longing for metamorphosis, but when she rises to her feet the solo loses some focus and intensity”
