Dancing is a way of being oneself but also being a group. So we made a ritual so we can dance together without needing to have the same dance. To feel togetherness especially when we’re not the same.
This is an instruction booklet, an operation manual, a hand book and a field guide for how we can dance together within a cosmopolitan and many-cultural reality where we no longer share a dance vocabulary with our neighbors.
It hopes to be a step by step practise that will disintegrate otherness.
It hopes to be a step by step practise that will deliver ones body back to them.
