Poetic Resistance ~ Nadia Vadori Gauthier


Poetic Resistance ~ Book “Danser Résister” .
One minute of dance a day by Nadia Vadori-Gauthier :

“I live in Paris. On January 7, 2015, the evening of the Charlie Hebdo attack, I was deeply shaken. I came up with the project One Minute of Dance Every Day to manifest a sensitive and poetic presence in the world and connect heterogeneous intensities by putting myself into play, alone or in relation to others. I wanted to assign myself a daily action, small but concrete and reiterated, coherent with my beliefs and working towards a living poetry, while at the same time creating a distinct, discrete work of art (the reason I number my dances).
This single minute requires hours of work each day. Until I complete it, it haunts me. Once it’s out there, I let go of all other potential minutes for the rest of the day.” — Quote from leprixdelessence.net .
