I AM LALLA, directed by Katya Zorina (Russia) was the result of an art laboratory based on the poetry of a Kashmir mystic and poet lalleshvari from the medieval India of 14th century.
we had a week for personal meetings to go into the one chosen poem and it's utterance. we developed steps into each verse in order to better embody the words of lalla.
the performance aimed at uniting the public and the performers into an undivided space where everything exists at the same time.
The performance was at the National Dance Center in Bucharest, Romania.

The poems are in themselves already poems. However, they also have a second “function”, which is a choreographic function. Inspired by Butoh and the Butoh-Fu notation, words, later to become poetry, move towards a second embodiment, that of the physical body which provokes the body to transmute them into dance.
