Since the primaeval age, Dance and Song have been the most human expressions of art to the extent of the possibilities and limits of our body.

We are dancing corpuscles, star dust. We reveal our 'deepest' identities, both singular and collective as we dance. Just like life itself, dancing renews itself perpetually: every time has its own dance and every dance has its own time...
