1974-1979 Beginning  and breaking up of a dance education in Geneva and Zürich. ( Broke up after definitely finding out about                                                       the  inability of my body to follow commands) During those years i was invited by a group of brazilian

                  and cuban dancers and musicians (partly initiated candomblé adepts) to be part of their group. We studied and performed        

                  a candomblé ritual. I was designated the figure Oxumaré, the orixa of the snake and the rainbow. This orixa (spirit) is of                                                   both sexes: 

                  Half of the year woman, the other half man. 

                  We continued this for sometime. We performed in theatres, clubs, hotels, culture-clubs.
