The two met each other in New York and produced “Balansophy” with a new perspective on life and the intention to work.
Freedom, detachment and self-knowledge. From matted to balance, attachment to redemption, from the outside to the inside. The path of self-realization in four phases: the adoration of the egocentrism, the discovery of a path to return to the true being, the break of patterns continued by the liberation dance and finally, a new life in balance. “Balansophy” is a response of the director’s frustration with the materialistic life, an action towards self-knowledge in order to break all conditioned patterns of the mind in result to free ourselves. It is time to awake and choose a path of freedom, detachment and balance! Balance for life, the necessity to get to know yourself, not only the surface that generates dissatisfaction and frustration, but the true self, recognizing the conditioned patterns of the mind and facing the self-image in order to obtain self-knowledge, aiming to be free.
