Olivia Grassot - Mouvement Artist 

'When I dance I feel I am living a moment of plenitude, I am playing with my dreams, I am moving my consciousness.
I like to see artworks as a historical print reflecting our response to our society. I see performative dance as an environnement where the complexity of the world is translated into sensations and vulnerability. Art is an essential, in the growth of our being. Creative learning, intellectual entertainment, world discovery: this is how I perceive performance art. I believe that artistry consist of being curious and open-minded, ready to collaborate and to meet the unknown- to question ourselves and what surround us to then create authenticity. We are not only looking at an artwork but an experience, a happening.'
