Through the River
The body as a river.
Just as in a river, the fluids of our body flow and take matters to another port
In this movement the impermanence of water is observed.
The waters run and fulfill their destiny in a disappearance and rebirth simultaneously
The River as a Body.
By its nature, the river does not go back. Human nature is always in return, through error and the pursuit of perfection, Trough the River invites to contemplation and confrontation of two geographies, one of the river and other of the human, starting from the flow movement and river banks as matter of Dance.
