Dancing for us has to do more with who one is than how high or long a leg can stretch for a jump or a step...
We have gone through a process of knowing who we are as a group, every time we get together, whether it is for rehearsal or training, we end up speaking about how we feel about the space we share, because it is a wonderful place to be.
We started this creative process by engaging with one another, looking at each other, and taking note on what this experiences showed us. Suddenly what we were doing was a reflection of what we would see happening on the outside. As a group we have constructed a dance piece that has to do with something that is inherent to our societies these days, the violence, the judgement and the great distance we put between each other when we are on streets and public places.
As part of the dance community, we are happy to see that after 10 years, perception of the way we work is changing, not only us but also the people around us, and people who dedicate themselves to dance or any line of work that involves movement are more often interested in sharing space and work with us.

Now we have a chance to grow as a group and within the community of dancers that work with diversity as well.
