DEVOTION & DEDICATION
A continual crossing of borders signifies Yara Mar and her way to dance. After a somber period in her life she decided to dedicate herself to the art of dance.
The most intense moments of dancing she experienced on the stages of various nightclubs-those nights and the collaborations with other dance artists as well as practising in a pole dance studio led to the development of a sensual style characterized by emotionally expressive movements. Movement is the bearer of meaning in her dance: prayer-poetry- passion.
She sees the significance of her dancing in a “confessional demeanour”, a way to take the inside to the outside .In this expression of mind and body , pleasure and pain can melt together in motion and music.
-I am physical
I am emotional
And this is personal-
my “Holy prostitution of the Soul”(Charles Baudelaire, Crowds)-
For her, a Pole Dance performance enables a strong connection between performer and spectator- entailing a gaze that is beyond projections of exhibitionism and voyeurism. The dancer and the spectator merge within the dancing and thus enter a mutual world of imagination.
