An interactive performance blending music, singing, theater, dance, vertical dance and co-written with the audience.
What are your dreams? What do you dream of contributing to in your life?”
We all have a life project. we all have dreams. However, most people do not realize their true dreams. They think it’s not possible, they don’t believe in it and they don’t give themselves the means. They are prisoners: prisoners of their beliefs, prisoners of their past, prisoners of social pressure, stereotypes in society, prisoners of the judgment of others… prisoners!”
Through my experience, I wish to convey the message that dreams are possible.
“At 18, I dreamt of becoming a dancer. Yet, I had only started dancing at 11—too late, they said. No conservatory training, insufficient technique, limited flexibility, not enough practice, and little experience. It felt like an unattainable, irrational dream. I was confined, trapped within my own beliefs.
But at 45, I discovered vertical dance, and suddenly, time stood still, and I found myself in a state of pure ecstasy. Now, my aspiration is to dance in order to share with you dreamy moments. I aim to amaze, touch, and inspire you, to lead you into dreams, to create a moment that transcends time—a connection beyond the ordinary. I dance not just for myself but for you, to bring serenity to your hearts and peace to our world.
At an age when many dancers retire, their bodies worn and spirits weary, my journey as a dancer takes an unexpected flight. One step at a time, each small stride leads my dream toward fulfilment.
And what about you? What is your dream, and how can you make it a reality?”
Dive deep within ourselves to understand your fears, your wounds, your limiting beliefs. Dive always deeper to break free from the judgment of others and from stereotypes, to shatter the constraints that confine us. Reclaim control over your life. It’s an explosion of freedom, an eruption of energy. We are free to move forward, to explore, to embark, to create, to radiate.

Theater, singing, and dance workshops were conducted with various audiences, in collaboration with the city’s political service, ISI Montjoie social center, Goutte d’Om, Petit Baou de Nature, LudiBaou, the family pension, as well as day-care centers and retirement homes in the city.
