The project Entities focuses on kinesthetic experience and creation of meanings, multidimensionality and the polyphormicity of the - sense of self - .

The project was presented at Weld (Stockholm) in April 2016 through two different works that address the audience in very distinct ways:
Entities - theater of gestures - a dance performance
Entities - immersion - an immersive installation
A third work will be presented in the fall 2016:
Entities - patterns of absence - a video work
Entities - immersion -
Aims at generating movement that takes shape from and then beyond the visual range, engendering a kinesthetic experience. 
The immersive environment is created through a rhythmical modulation of lights; it deals with rate and duration, while it explores the texture of color in relation to flashes of white light. 
Approaching the work from a choreographic perspective we deal with light not as the medium that illuminates some-thing, rather as the thing; a subject made of waves and particles, which moves and fills the space between the walls of the room and the physical boundaries of the human body. 
The rhythmical modulation is proposed in the form of interplay between light and darkness and it creates a liminal space between presence and absence, where the visitor and his/her perception of spatial boundaries and self boundaries become the core medium of the work. 
The attempt is to create an environment that on one side can heighten the sensations, the corporality of oneself: "I can sense and sense myself sensing”. While on the other side it dissolves the self, it expands it to a point of: "I don't exist anymore", "I am everywhere”.
