Transcendance (2009)

When the world's echoes unite in me, I listen to their roar, and I dance.
The door of doubt closes and opens onto my senses.
Listening to the roaring world inside of me, I dance, I live, I exist. I Dance in the world's body.
Through the•body of the world, my body, the world dances.
Under the light that supports each one of my gestures, I exhale the dust of movements.
The world flaps its wings, liberates itself from gravity.
I Dance a thousand memories of human form buried in the night of time, across the light that sustains.
I Dance the time of the philosopher, of the poet, I dance the infinite.
I Dance•my body in harmony with gravity.
I Dance•my emotions through the poetry of the movement
Coming back to myself, belong finally, I find eternity in the moment of movement.
