To be before someone. This is what (because of its Latin etymology) the word “presence” means. It is hard to imagine a deeper concept, a greater promise and at the same time a sweet certainty to experience. It is the opposite of lack, it refuses exceptionality, it is expressed in time and it is also a key to exclude it. It is the touching sensation of being in relation with the existence; it is the consciousness of too great a love to be associated with the name of your beloved. The practice of being is to be, and to be aware of being, it is to feel that all that exists (that is the Creation) is joy, is sensuality of the spirit. The mind simulates the future, broods over the past and redraws it….All that represents our strength (the power of imagination, of invention) is at the same time a heavy burden when it precludes the perception of the presence, when the mind escapes from the present and refuses the beauty of a meeting, on which to rely, capturing its priceless harmony, (beyond life contingencies, often uneveryone else, when not willing to feel the joy of being (and to be present), I am nothing but a radio turned off, in the desolation of a silence that is nostalgically looking back or anxiously forward. If on the contrary I tune myself with all that I have before me, and I welcome those presences, even though I do not see them, then the voices of the world (and The opportunities to understand, to experience, this presence are endless. Prayer is a main road for those who want to follow it. But even shared music (also the modest and affectionate occasion of this meeting of sounds, of a summer evening, along the Tuscan valley where we get, on tiptoe, once a year) may be a help not to escape the present, to stop believing that you are alone on your road, and hear – with the sounds that keep us together holding hands – the euphoria of the intimate relationship with what exists, with Andrea Bocelli

Every gesture, every movement is the expression of the human being, its feelings and state of mind through a complete synergy, empathy and artistic give to my dance while they make it on their own. This is my artistic and choreographic mandate, my idea of the sublimation of art.
