CREATIONS

crea1

"…Yet having followed this dancer’s work for almost twenty years and now, seeing the Trianon theatre jam-packed with a largely feminine audience, one can but feel that her artistic commitment has not been in vain". Dominique Frétard (Le Monde 06/03/2003)

Choreographic pieces have toured around the world- USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, North Africa, Middle East, etc.

THE BELLY OF THE MOUNTAIN - DANCE WITH THE DREAMERS


 

World première at MJC Théâtre de Colombes, France

“What’s the point of a song with no message?” And, apart from its esthetic force and beauty, what’s the point of a dance that doesn’t militate in favour of a better world?

If I have chosen to call this new creation “THE BELLY OF THE MOUNTAIN - DANCE WITH THE DREAMERS” it is so that my dance becomes a dream-catcher at the disposal of all the visionaries of the world

"..... Just like moons and like suns
with the certainty of tides
just like hopes springing high
Still I'll rise..... "
(Maya Angelou)
