BEYOND SEEING

A teamwork with Sarah Willemart and Hugo Paternotre 

We first experienced the spatial feeling of our body in blindness condition and then considered the meeting with a partner like a choreography.

We designed a series of three tools to dance, without the eyes, exclusively with

the instinct of our bodies, in order to discover a new caring, sensitive dancing world.
