Staging the practice of drawing through intimacy, trust and risk

as in a dream that we don’t want to end

we retrace our lines

in the hope

like in the myth of the minotaur

by way of a thread

to find our way out of the labyrinth


in the desire for our presence to become tangible

to wake up into another dream

a dream of trust, of touch, of intimacy

beyond platonic

beyond romantic

beyond sexual

ONÍRICA is the result of a meditation-based practice, informed by authentic movement, drawing and dream journaling. Our practice informs our way of being with each other. Emotional and physical states manifest in our interactions and in our lines. We honor our impulses. There is an undeniable sense of empowerment when pathos gets to be in the driving seat and logos relaxes its hand out of the window – just playfully riding the wind.
