A moment is a duet which demonstrates the complexity and layers of a moment. It talks about how a moment can change an individual’s attitudes to thoughts, experiences and life in general. The interpretation of this piece shows the power of courage, built up through the events that happen in ones life by surprise and later lead us to patience, attentiveness and understanding in facing challenges or joys.

The dance piece explores the questions of how moments define our existence and how our existence and experiences depend on how we experience the current moments.

The dance is centered around the concept of moments, existence, courage and our unique and personal interaction with them. It explores the physical and emotional possibility to demonstrate our shared moments with one another and how we show support, care and comfort while experiencing it.

Fake it until you make it

A contemporary dance theater piece that talks about the journey of artists to success. All artists have dreams and plans to success but in middle of the journey most of them give up because of the challenges that line their careers for so long, freedom, abuse, betrayal, rape, despair, a lack of money, a life full of drama. All artists have to pass some of those challenges to achieve success in their career. Unfortunately their success will never show the reality to audiences and people. Instead people start to see an illusion of a successful career and confuse it with a successful life.
