As I reach the end of my career, I have awakened to a new form of dance, which consists of dancing my ideas through the bodies of others. That includes the dancers, who bring with them their own stories and complex emotional experiences. But what remains unchanged is my passion to explore old and new myths in the context of our age. One of the seeds of inspiration for Outwitting the Devil is the iconic fresco of the Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. This image has haunted me since I saw it for the first time as a child“.
