Labour is blossoming or dancing where the body is not bruised to pleasure soul, nor beauty born out of its own despair, nor blear-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil,.. o chestnut tree, great routed blossomer Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole? O body swayed to music, o brightening glance, How can we know the dancer from the dance? W.B. Yeats
The body is in a constant metamorphosis. It transforms into unexpected shapes, exploring different functionalities. The slightest modification becomes a change in perspective. By playing with small decalages and changes, expands a world from within. 'Each shape is a window to another world'
