La danseuse Gwen Rakotovao sur scène à Bangkok interprétant la création INITIATION


The word INITIATION is defined as an act of beginning something or an act to welcome a human being into a special group. In a world where natural and human disasters occur repeatedly, human beings are challenged to push their limits. In our society, the definition of success has different meanings. For some it represents a race for money, a gold rush devoid of any morality; for others it is the challenge of overcoming a difficult ordeal, an illness. A quest that connects human beings altogether, creates stories and encourages human beings to journey on... 

In this setting, the dancer introduces us to her reality. The starting point is loneliness and obstacles to overcome. A starting point that inevitably returns and attracts her like a magnet.
