Dance

What movement does she perceive? What story does she interpret? What is her true movement?

ROF is the first result of the dance research All movement has a mind in time and space which consists of evolving a new technique in choreography which has as a purpose to correlate the inner condition of the body, a certain state of mind towards movement and choreography.

How can the movement of the mind reach its high point in relation to the idea of time? What story does the dancer embody?

An approach where a way is found to seize time in a certain state of mind. Time will take the form of a charged proclamation.

…Viscous liquid moon in my right hand strongly led me forward. I felt it clearly in my right hand. There’s a string between it and the the heart center (Anahata Chakra). My sense-perception comes from there, a moon from the heart center…( Halla Þórðardóttir)
