THE HUG, a simple gesture with many sides that can greatly twist the end of a story. Inspired by chronicle stories where the hug has turned into a dagger,we wanted to explore the causes that determine its changes, how these are perceived, when we become aware of it and how it affects our being, emphasizing, with a touch of irony the dangerousness, but reminding us that since its origins it has been a symbol of care , love and affection. GUH!!! It is a battle cry, the battle of hugs versus hugs.

She moves through dance, music, choreography, acting, modelling, djing and creates movements of people together. She has background and training in contemporary, kathak, bollywood, bhangra, hiphop, house dance, popping and waacking. Amisha is currently busy with exploring her artistic research called _peeling my purple onion where she is peeling away taught movement (off balancing) and behaviour to come closer to an essence (balancing). With ancient Indian tools she navigates through balancing and off balancing in reaction to the frequencies being created in space live with a loopstation. Amisha invites you into a sensorial work in progress sharing to sense the echoes of her research and experinces.
