No gesture is spontaneous, every movement of the body is shaped by our experiences, our history, the contexts in which we have grown up.

Our gestures are an infinite accumulation of our past experiences.

Change arises by relating those gestures to the immediately present context and thus generating ruptures that unfold new points of view.’
