“The universe is movement itself, pleasure to create, vitality that constantly renews: everything is dance. In this perspective is implicit the message: you are not alone; however precarious, isolated, or desperate you may feel, you participate in one immense dance; […] If you want to become aware of this union and perceive reality in its deepest essence, dance”.
Piero Ferrucci, Esperienze delle Vette
‘Ima’ is a Japanese term for ‘the present moment’; in Aramaic and Hebrew it also stands for ‘mother’ in its meaning of rebirth and renewal.
IMA quintet was imagined during the period of social distancing. We found ourselves alone in our true home – our body – where the main tangible and temporal dimension is the present, and our existence becomes more sensitive to small things.
In this space, the need to relate to the other, in the absence of physical contact, leads to a deep sense of connection and longing for co-creation. Being alone with our bodies makes us perceive that everything, inside and around, has not stopped, on the contrary it keeps existing in a dance of universal interconnection.
