Space, Attire and Image: Goya, Spain and Dance
Artist and coaching specialist ZAIGA PUTRĀMA:“In each era, there is some externally invisible essence, something very important which is expressed by a culture as a whole, which includes visual art. Something which can only be felt or suspected, and is translated into colours, sounds, words or movements.”
