Lasts 47’; no intermission.
The body of our desires both speaks and dances. We dance as we suffer from our desires. The body we have makes everything significant. A feeling of deficiency and of incompleteness is always deep in us. Our attempt to live well in a perfect existence in life never ends. We wish to replace what is missing in our lives and to make up for our losses and shortcomings. The world always belongs to the “other” we can never achieve all these unless we go through the paths of grudge and jealousy or satisfaction and happiness.
