Merleau Indiano is a relational apparatus in which thinking and practice combine each other to bring real anatomies closer to fantastic ones in the dancing spectacle of the encounter. It is the first nomination of the generative environment that is to be created, a mutation already underway, faunal vast oceanic warmth, an encyclopedic crossing. Nomination of The between dance and philosophy, of our meeting which by its vocation to openness is already forgetfulness in making space for all other possible encounters, for all the others Between. An investigation into the possibilities of  The between as a present in which the subjects get involved in a dialogue and in which the future is imagined together. A phenomenological observatory in which philosophical and choreographic thought nourish the gaze by opening windows on the possibilities of the present, conceived as a sea of extensional relationships in which knowledge acquired here and now is valued, short circuits, rejects and re-choreographies of them, in which what still I don’t know I will soon know, through generative processes. A poetic of weaving in a political dimension understood as a recipe for a shared time in which the subjects, located in a system of existence rather than efficiency, co-define a polyrhythm of interactions as waves that can emphasize or dampen their effects by magic, agreement, disagreement, prefiguration, design, aleatority. Becoming Nature as a cluster of possible phenomena that manifest themselves through the actions of bodies, creating thinking, dancing, sound, eidetic, plastic environments in the environment. A wandering in which these are scattered throught a fade-in / fade-out process. This formation and self-formation environment is an apparatus for creating live interactions where “dance is seen as a form of autonomy of the living, a form of presence, of perceivable intensity through the bodies, of emergent behavior; choreography is a form of organization of a certain material in space and time in an experimental exercise of freedom

What is?
What can a body do? And a body with other bodies?
How to get around? What to do?
Where do I get my “why”?
What can I know (learn) here and now through dancing behavior?
