It is a performance installation that expresses the power and beauty of the body in transformation. The body is seen as a developing algorithm that takes the place of the initiator. The performer demonstrates this practice by overloading her cognitive awareness, leaving her body to find its own path. Body Language is the result of a study on how the body can take charge, leaving us to listen to how it expresses itself. The body behaves in different ways based on its surroundings. Body Language is designed to be presented in diverse locations and situations. The goal is to discover the diverse behavioral patterns that govern the body and to explore the journey that it can take us on.
