Feldenkrais came as a reaction to my reality as a performer artist.
as a performer, you have to be present, you feel, you recognize much more the traces of exhaustion
to embed learning of, and supporting the body into the art structure
using Feldenkrais in order to understand and approach different realms, fields, and territories
when teaching artists I talk about technique, I'm aware that I would like to facilitate them with tools and instruments, to help them to become independent as artists
my work is always in relation to other work, other people, in relation to the body
When I'm making a show I think about the public - how will the public move in space - the body of the visitor is a main character of the performance, more than my work
through Feldenkrais you develope a sort of sensitivity - you see things that don't fit anymore
it is more about the practice of care
