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-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 connects the spectator entrailing a gaze beyond projections of exhibitionism and voyeurism. They can merge within the dancing,an essential closeness can come into being- a “feeling” of sensual same as visual pleasure and its poetic essence.
” Flesh creates in the way the spirit creates…lust is a force.”
(Futurist Manifesto of Lust, Valentine de Saint-Point,
11. January 1913)
