SENTIMENTAL ANIMALS

Is about connecting to a state prior  to any action, to mainly resort to our senses and instincts as source to generate motion. It arises from the need to connect to a language that detaches from what the body already knows,  to stop ourselves from shapes and figures and decision making, to contradict tendencies and rather instigate in what lies at the core of all. Its about the wish to depart from a place that is unknown and yet so true to ourselves, let oneself be surprised, allow it all to be unpredictable.

Two beings rediscovering themselves, rediscovering one another in a place that has to be felt as if for the first time.
