Synopsis

To remember a dance by remembering the counts, the space, the feeling. Also, the sweat, the steps and context; to remember the memory of what we remember dancing, the ones that we danced with or imagined while dancing. To remember a dance that we never really danced. Dancing as a fake title, an imagination, fantasy and fiction.
This performance presents a publication. Instead of the printed form, this publication was learned by heart by one performer and it is transmitted through an embodied memory. The publication will be delivered in one on one sessions with the duration of 30 minutes each.
