PASSION & POETRY
DEVOTION & DEDICATION
“Yara” as name has various meanings , it connects diverse images in myth and language:
a warrior, a woman, a wound, a lover-a cretaure of the river & godess of waters.
For the dancer Yara movement is the bearer of meaning,
signified by a “confessional demeanour”, a way to take the inside to the outside
-I am physical
I am emotional
And this is personal-
my “Holy prostitution of the Soul”(Charles Baudelaire, Crowds)
In this way the dancer and spectator entail a gaze beyond exhibitionism and voyeurism, merging within an essential feeling of sensual same as visual pleasure.
” Flesh creates in the way the spirit creates…lust is a force.”
(Futurist Manifesto of Lust, Valentine de Saint-Point,
11. January 1913)
