PASSION & POETRY 

DEVOTION & DEDICATION

“Yara” as name has various meanings 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 feel deep inside and bring it to the outside

-I am physical
I am emotional
And this is personal-
“Holy prostitution of the Soul”(Charles Baudelaire, Crowds)

 

There is a gaze beyond exhibitionism and voyeurism, where dancer and spectator are connected in a feeling of sensual same as visual pleasure-
within a certain kind of energy.

 

” Flesh creates in the way the spirit creates…lust is a force.”

(Futurist Manifesto of Lust,  Valentine de Saint-Point,

11. January 1913)
