"I believe that when something different happens and surprises our process of life, the human being almost doesn’t know the way to react. That’s why we shouldn’t take so seriously the codifications and give more space to the unpredictable, and try to have something extraordinary, beyond the normal, simple but unique at the same time. 

It is interesting how the choreography relates to our time and the COVID pandemic, something so unexpected in our lives. We didn't know how to react because this virus has broken our codifications and our rhythm of life. Instead it has provoked something new. People are starting to create new ways of life for both work and communication while spending time at home during lockdown."
