Eva Vigran & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Dance

Empathy is like water, it flows and takes any shape. The opposite of empathy is like cold hard ice. In the dance we begin with self-empathy, by feeling into ourselves, melting the stress points, finding out what is going on in our bodies.

 

We get away from the words and can feel our breath and gravity. We can then start to feel and empathize with others. Our drop of water merges with others and we become a third body.
