- - Dissociation is a mental process of disconnecting from one’s thoughts, feelings, memories or sense of identity.
- - The person may switch to another personality state when under stress.
But for me it was never tourmenring, it was fun joggling around with opposite feelings and personalities, there was a piece of me in each of these type of personalities that I would bring them back and forth, put each one in charge of different challenges and situations.
I began to dig deeper in this field and found it quite fascinating. The multiple faces of the same thing.
So, of course at one point, my two subjects of exploration blended in order to create a series of videos emphasizing different faces of ... belly dance. The agressive, the sweet, the gansta', the poetic, the dark, the sexy and so on. It was a journey of discovery, of expression, of testing, of finding and of purification . It reached it's goal and so it's time to die.
I am grateful to everyone who helped me bring my ideas to reality: Raluca Gorogos who helped me with directing and editing, Radu Gorgos for finding the most beautiful locations, filming and editing, Enrique Camara Gutierres ( aka Jim Laden ) for make up, sometimes filming, sometimes painting, sometimes staying with my son so we can film, to Sereia Tribal Fusion for her guest appearance in the last video and to my son Milo for his understanding, also guest starring and feedback for each video and simply for being there as my center always.
So here it is, the full series of the Belly Dance With A Twist videos. Thanks a lot, Cheers and Bliss always ( or at least, as often as possible- Whatever works)
