Here’s the…5th session of Newtopia 7

Forward from the author  :

The theme of the exhibition is taken from the years of work with choreographer Bernardo Montet, but also from a few from Taoufiq Izeddiou’s work plus from my creations with Omnivion in Tours and the XSOMA collective in Greece. These photographs have been brought to light in resonance with the current theme of my choreographic project Newtopia / Dance and Mental Health. The ecstatic body has been present in various traditions throughout the ages, throughout the world. It is a space of exposition where singularity is protected and even valued. A place of renewal for the individual who nourishes the community with a sense of freedom and renewal through creativity”
