The human body is the subject that I love: "Like the sea, the body" is a performance that speaks of the female body. The female body in particular is a territory of beauty, pleasure and conflict. In the last six years I have worked on the feminine nature and birth. Now I focus on a part of the body: the breasts, the chest, where the 4th chakra resides, where the heart lives.

The narrative axis is a timeline that tells how this part of the body has had many meanings throughout history. We inhabit a body that changes, mutates, matures. You, how do you name each one of the parts of your body? As the author says: "One can name things in a thousand ways according to their intention. But beware: the synonyms do not contain the same thing ".
