Dancing in a limited space is never easy. This period in history has led everyone to adapt to live in conditions that are not always comfortable. Nevertheless, there is a way to feel. The repetitiveness of the mantra helped creativity to express itself, giving space to a new form of listening.It was like experiencing "having to be": to be in a space, in a time and with an externally sound form which at first could be monotonous, but later became stimulating and inspiring.
