The work should be done properly, so it’s time to tell about the performance (real performance not the events or outcomes of couple hours of creation), which was part of the Cal-Laboratory Kitchen 2012. Solo Logic (choreographed by Alexanadre Iseli and Jazmin Chiodi from Ireland, performed by Alexandre Iseli, www.iselichiodi.com) was presented twice – […]
