Serkan Gokcesu & Cecilia Garcia
“EMOTION BECOMES MOTION
Dedicated to the study of Tango via the knowledge of the body … The proposition is to explore the Tango through its most intimate concept, our bodies and our partner. Using breathing, listening, and a touch that is soft and precise, to create a unique connection between the Earth, our center, and our partner. The music and the dance as sacred creatures that invite us on a journey to the depths of our being, our origin.
The Tango is a dance, and as such, is living and changing, as much – or more than – the sea. Fluid and energetic, passionate and tender, the expression of our personality through movement.”
“Your Emotional World wants you to explore, hug and shared it.”
