The research of the most suitable mood has failed. I will live with contrasts, obviousness, fear and dynamism. I will live in suffering and joy, ferocity and sweetness. Going through the elusive interconnection that runs through life, between  sacred and sinister events. I will dance the emotional ritual of the cycle of life.

The solo is inspired by the well-known documentaries Baraka (Benediction) – 1992 and Samsara (Sanskrit “continuous flow” or ” the infinite turning of the wheel of life ”) 2001, directed by Ron Fricke, American film director and cinematographer, specializing in time-lapse photography .

The documentaries with no narrative or voice-over, are enriched by the extraordinary music of the composer Michael Stearns, (who, has rediscovered the original recording after over 10 years and has remastered it exclusively for this version).
