WIP for one

Let each movement naturally explain its original meaning. It must live on its own, without effort, without purpose.

Appreciate it with justice and benevolence, contemplate the energy which gives it birth and life.

In this work, the dancer dressed in an industrial dress, moves with a very sober décor, contact with a heavy wooden board, which is as white as him. This large board structures and frames his expression liberty, its shadow and its movements are constrained by its weight and format.
