"The figure of the dancer has been the paradigm of everything that the body can do in full use of its faculties, including what we imagine the body could never do. Let's think for a moment what would be the model that could offer the body of an old dancer Would a vulnerable body, sterile and nothing sexy, be paradigmatic? Would a body with an increasingly limited domain capacity be exemplary? To approach these questions we decided to imagine a fictional and paradoxical creature: The old dancer.
The body of the old dancer trains for wonders that she can never carry out. But, despite all these contradictions, the old dancer has an advantage over the other creatures: she dances with the limits of her body as part of her own essence. "
