DEN.TRO is an internal journey to the temple body.

The pursuit of self. Light, shadow, conscious and subconscious.

I propose the body as a living sculpture, a vein of communication, a storehouse of memories and emotions carved by the experiences of life. DEN.TRO investigates internal states in an amalgam of movement, sound, text and imagery.

A study of identity that emerges from the relational ocean of being. Are we slaves to genetics or free to change? These are questions that I pose and intend to develop in the body language of this piece. I used the the philosophy of Carl Jung and Alan Watts as a a departing station to take me on a journey.

"I wonder now how it is possible for one to see clearly if one does not see oneself? There is no change from shadow to light, nor from inertia to movement, without emotion ... emotion is an alchemical fire ... a privileged source of consciousness. " -Carl Jung
