Inside i'm dancing 2021

We have to adjust. To mimic. Keep silent. Hold back. No matter how much society talks about freedom and tolerance now, the fear of being incomprehensible is practically imprinted in our DNA. However, the body doesn't lie. Nudity like the deepest truth, movement is like freedom. But you should still wear a mask to hide your face, your identification number. Speaking anonymously is always easier and safer. The main thing is to express yourself.
