Entry Description

"The sons of Terpsichore" is a long term documentary project, container of several small stories. Stories of people who make of their lifes a unique masterpiece. Anonymously, dedicating their lives to dance. To begin this cycle of stories, I came to San Pablo (Brazil) where I met Aldenice (31), a beautiful ballet dancer. “Nice”, as her friends named her, is blind. She lost his sight because of congenital glaucoma, genetic oddity that equally affects her two older sisters too.
