YUGEN. How far can a story be created through ever-changing, vulnerable, manipulable improvisation? A specific research on improvisation and tempo that questions the possibilities of rhythm, an instrument from which Sita creates a new language shared by the dancers on stage. But it is also a personal story that addresses the individual from the individual, ambiguous in his being independent and influenced. This is how movement becomes a springboard to discover new empathies, new relationships and new visions.
