Description Reality of Six Senses is a contrasting dialogue between dance and music. It is based on the poetry of Arto Melleri, on his book called The Testimony Five Senses.
This poetical work of his has inspird a chain of mind associations and metaphores turned into movement. The motion opens some doors into the world of senses while closing others. It tries to sharpen and polish things and phenomena around us in order to make life more breathing.
The choice of music is an integral part of the atmosphere in this work of art. The pieces of music either support or argue with the motion; They can both start a dialogue and refuse to have a conversation.
