Ivan Estegneev: I am interested in how each of us can become a guide in the study of the possibilities of one’s own body and its unique bodily freedom. To go beyond the boundaries of your actual shell, or to put it differently: beyond the boundaries of your ‘own skin’, using at the same time various layers of bodily means of expression.
