Choreographed by Virginie Mécène, UNUM, a trio for 3 men, explores the idea that mankind comes from the same source of energy. UNUM (one in Latin) is a collaboration between Mécène and composer Jacopo Baboni Schilingi that utilizes groundbreaking medical technology to measure the breath. The dancer’s breath is translated into sound as they move through the choreography. Unconsciously, we are One.

I hope you will continue to be a part of the Table of Silence and join us for future workshops and performances.

Touching the earth… from the sole of our foot to the soul of the earth… One step at a time, we shall change the world…"

With loving gratitude, xxoo Jacqulyn
