A performance with two dancers, phantoms, words and Paint.

“Garden of desires" is a small-scale interdisciplinary venture. Originating from research at the intersection of movement practices and cognitive science, it is a performative investigation on the tangency of bodily sensation and imagination. Central to this process is touch and tactile stimulation - in variety and nuances, actual, fictitious, imagined, spoken, which uncovers different bodies contained in one. A body which borders can be far away from their substance. A body that morphs its proprioceptively felt shape through touch and sensation into its alternatives, phantastic entities, manifested in movement. A body that extends through imagery it evokes, into other spaces, universes.

"Garden of desires" is an outcome of a long investigation that began with "Phantoms beyond the brain" and made the path for  previous projects, "Phantom of paradise", "Garden of desires @ Memphis Memphis".
