With FreedivingDancer Marisa wants to merge the passion of the dance with the one for diving and knowledge of video editing creating dance videos in water without breathing going to a depth of 17 meters dancing without fins and taking advantage of the beautiful and unique scenery of the deepest pool in the world:Y-40 . These investigations in movement underwater with different physics laws take place also under the sea.
This video was filmed in Mediterranean Sea in Italy. It wants to celebrate the natural enviroment where the human can live naturally, without breathing and without damage it. The movements of the body are free and represent the human origin before our born.
This short trailer represents a new kind of art: dancing deep underwater without breathing (freediving) in the sea and in the deepest pool of the world, the Y-40 in Italy.
Impact to the society: This research in movements in the water started on 2014 and is still evolving. It permits to discover the various super-powers that the water gives to the human body and also it conntects the body to its origin before birth. It is very pleasant to do it in contact with other people.
Motivation: Dancing underwater is a very relaxant way to be connected to the nature and to be awareness of our human condition.
Objectives: This dance is surprising to people who can do it and also to those who watch the various videos.
All the researchs are documented in a web site: http://freedivingdancer.altervista.org/ in the dedicated youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/ferraracontact and in a book: “Deep water motion manual: Dancing in absence of air”.
