CREATION FOR AN ABLED DANCER AND A DISABLED DANCER
A circle, a square and, in the centre, an emblematic figure of a man. These are the starting points of Feeling Good a duet about the ability to “be” and “feel”, a skill of contemporary dance that does not reign in a canonical form of perfection, but that finds its “being” in the acceptance of oneself, of one’s own strength and fragility which is not dictated by a symmetrical form of thinking, but which looks at the diversity of every human being in an asymmetrical way, since only diversity can destroy an idea of “canonical” beauty, which no one can please because there can be no universal model of “beauty”.
