Salón (work in progress) investigates the personas we inhabit in a social event; the struggle and the need to interact with strangers; the urge to see and to be seen, the ways in which we include or exclude ourselves in a social experience. Salón explores the social need of dance, proposing an avenue where we can expose each other, accessing an exchange that is animistic and vital.
