Eddie Lame, dancer-performer-dance teacher-choreographer
Upstairs the knowledge scale
Stories carried in bodies, memories of knowledge and the scars they leave on the skin, as they struggle to reach the surface. The road of knowledge leads upwards, towards the purpose of human, as the greek word itself indicates: “Man = Antrhopos = ano throsko = looking up”, towards spiritual elevation. Because, without knowledge there is no future.
