et-men means “breathe”. It is the etymological root of Atman: the real Self that one ought to discover.
Performance et-men or breathe is a participatory event that invites viewers to connect with themselves and others through the dual process of meditation and observation. It composes a movement, light, and sound ritual to transform into a vibrant mandala of bodies and to manifest each time an in situ invocation. Through the experience of being ‘together’, as a new breath, the participatory event encourages viewers to return to the city and redefine their relationship with it.
