The universe is movement itself, pleasure to create, vitality that constantly renews: everything is dance. In this perspective is implicit the message: you are not alone; however precarious, isolated, or desperate you may feel, you participate in one immense dance; […] If you want to become aware of this union and perceive reality in its deepest essence, dance.
“Esperienze delle Vette” by Piero Ferrucci

The name “Ima” is a Japanese term indicating “the present moment”; in Aramaic and Hebrew “Ima” also stands for “mother”, referring to rebirth and renewal. IMA was imagined during the period of social distancing due to the emergency from COVID-19.

We have been left alone in our real home – our body – where only the temporal dimension of Now exists, where our existence becomes more sensitive to the small things, where the need to relate to one an other, in the absence of physical contact, leads to a deep sense of interconnectedness and nostalgia for co-creation. Being alone with just ourselves makes us clearly perceive that everything, inside and around us, has not stopped: it is constantly evolving in a dance that is the interconnection of all things.
