with Emanuela Genesio

Being insightful/ staying there/ chance and discipline as sounds to listen
Eyes, body, hands as movements to trace/ insight and outside

Have you ever felt or perceived that a poem, an image, and a sound are part of the same nature, the "raw materials" of breathing? And that while breathing you get to a point where creativity, rationality and freedom nourish themselves until they constitute the energy of the movement?

The relationship between senses and the mind has always been the field of art, fulcrum and intersection of intuition and discipline, expression and projection. From a time when early man traced the movement of his hand (his painterly creations) on a grotto, to the current high-tech devices of the contemporary visual artists, art has always been a display of energy, developed here and now.

Today it's a versatile and adaptable concept, where laity and non dogmatic spirituality, let the observer be conscious of his living-being.

In the wake of this insight, we'll attempt in coming close to the experience of the perceptible in a full accord with body and mind. By using Indian ink and other materials; meditating into and with nature; listening to instrumental or natural sounds; contemplating some ancient or contemporary Western or oriental works of art; and practicing Asana and Tai-chi movements, we'll delve deeper into Zen aesthetics by respecting our present moment. This is a journey in which we 'go and stay', walking inside an energy in light and dense tides, which is defined by numerous cultures, religions and thoughts under different names.
