«I Noticed» Poetry and Dance

«I Noticed» is a piece that I created last year and has been selected to participate in two International Choreographic Competitions! It is a choreography with four dancers where poetry and dance create a dialogue between the oral language and the movement. Delicate and mysterious in the beginning, the dancers find the way to translate the text into their bodies creating emotions with it, by noticing their own thoughts and fears.

« (…) I noticed my own heart beating, breath passing through my nostrils

my feet walking, eyes seeing,

(…) I noticed the sea, I noticed the music – I wanted to dance.»

De: Allen Ginsber; «On the Cremation of Chogyam Trungpa VIdyadhara» (1987), Cosmopolitan Greetings: Poems 1986-1992 by Allen Ginsberg.

And this summer will participate in:

«Certamen Internacional de Coreografía Burgos New York»

This Competitions has showcased performances from more than 35 countries and given selected choreographers the opportunity to present their work in a state of the art facility before a jury of recognized and distinguished members of the dance world. Exposure from this Competitions showcases has launched the careers of many talented artists!!!

Both Competitions cover the accommodation, but not the travel costs!!

Even the smallest contribution will be a BIG support for us!

What we will do with your support?
