“A mature Oriental DANCER has no answers – she/he digs into the Unknown and smiles at it; she/he embraces all that is Existence – sexuality included but not only. The common spectator will – no doubt – be struck by this box of INFINITE possibilities: a mind that flies above itself; a heart that is intelligent and an intelligence that is sensual; a body which is not only a body but a spirit talking through a body. Pleasure – physical, sexual, sensual – that is not only pleasure but already a Prayer. That´s Oriental Dance.
-You can´t blame them for damning this dance, Joana…there´s nothing scarier than Freedom.
