Best Female Dancer '10
A state of knowing less gives room for the desire to discover and being found by 'what's in the air' - an adventure of discovery and graceful failings.
Frey Faust former dancer
We dance, where there is place for anything. We are there, where everything happens, and in that there is no superiority.
Inside of ourselves there are many desires, and it might be a different dance that wants to be danced every moment, and on the other hand it might be one dance that you do for your life.
