Description: A circle, a square and, in the centre, an emblematic figure of a man. These are the starting points of Feeling Good a duet about the ability to “be” and “feel”, a skill of contemporary dance that does not reign in a canonical form of perfection, but that finds its “being” in the acceptance of oneself, of one’s own strength and fragility.
