Performance synopsis

What if life and time is just a great loop, a continuous, eternal return, approaching death, accepting the inevitable change? Every day we can peel off our own stories, personal beliefs and taste inevitability. The dance performance ‘Salto mortale’ is an experimental meeting of image and movement in search of stories recorded in the body. The performance is created on the basis of improvisation techniques based on Arnold Mindell’s concept of the ‘dreaming body’ and authentic movement.
