“IDHRA/Breath — birth…… about breath of life, about the beat of the heart, love and desire , the rhythmical patterns of society, the vibration of air, the sound of noise, the breath IN, the breath OUT, the dimension of energy, the cycle of life, the end of breath……birth….IDHRA” (based on a text by Iris Schmidt Rios)
