Portraits Project: Dance Your Flaming Minds

2012 on going

Four young individuals came from different cultural backgrounds, have different skin colors and with different interests in daily lives, they were also brought up with different ideologies, however there is one thing in common: they all love dance, many times intoxicatingly.

The four peculiar body movements unfold four singular inner worlds that are on the fullness of search, desire, struggle and joy. While their bodies start to burn their minds, the dynamic comes out of the movements transforms into a form of flame – it’s vigorous and infective.

One could see these personal dynamics as an evidence of a profound existential state of mind that is rarely exposed.
