What’s beyond the art of dance? What can dancers do to improve the lives of children who live in countries affected by internal conflicts, disasters or children living in dysfunctional families? Life has taught us that when we push together towards a goal, we can move mountains. InsightDproject is a dance. project focused in the development of an artistic path at an early age. Children and teenagers would have the opportunity to recognise themselves as human beings capable of achieving goals through their courage, tenacity, responsibility and discipline.
This project involves dancers, choreographers, producers, musicians, psychologists and consultants from different corners of the world. Their efforts have contributed to shaped this process. Everything started while in New York in April 2016.
I, Joe Belial, a visual artist, journalist, but above all, a simple human being passionate of the image, felt the urge to share my insight beyond the beauty of the movements, through audiovisuals and photography. Dance helps to change lives!
Personal satisfaction has been something that human beings have always long for, needing without any doubt, the help or inspiration of others tp achieve this. In this tenacious search, human being has come to experience different arts, which have enable him to find himself and unconsciously unload his emotions and feelings.
Dance has been one of those languages that allows human beings to communicate through movements, expressing feelings and moods. Dance awakens emotions and fantasies through the motion. It facilitates the expression of sensations, emotions, feelings and moods in a natural and uninhibited way.
Thus, we can connect with ourselves and with those emotions that we repress, such as rage, anger, anxiety, anguish, pain, sadness, which can be channeled in a healthy way, helping emotional control in the day by day.
The videos on this page, present a subtle insight of what’s beyond dance for insightDproject and how this can be a means of social transformation. The activities were carried out in Evitar and Cartagena, Colombia. The purpose is to conduct pilot tests of dance workshops related to the project.
