“Dance as a form of art remains an important part of our cultural expression through movement, music, and sound. Contemporary dance, in particular, offers a unique creative and emotional processing of events we are confronted with for performers, choreographers, and the audience. Meeting Sonia Plumb in London in 2019 through the most unexpected introduction in relation to the ‘Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing’ Exhibition at Buckingham Palace, opened the door to a fascinating multidisciplinary exchange of ideas reflecting on the changing world and our Planet, whilst placing people in the center of our ongoing creative collaboration.”
