Research & Projects

“Play is the highest form of research.” Einstein


Besides I am NOT a soloist. I learn better and prosper in collaborative environments. In years, I had the great chance to work in collectives composed of therapists, movement researchers, artists, scholars from various backgrounds and sciences. You can find details of the great teams and the projects that I have co-founded, participated in and am still running in the links below.

“All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing.”   Molière
