What am I if I only translate? When One translate from one language to another, one masters both language and the language its self is defined in its system, in its function, What am I if I only can appear in translation?

Lets go to the floor and try to keep a balance with a hope that soon we will fall, Lets say we have some photos of war or a scene form a move and we are going to translate them to movement, composition, space, time, behavior and action,

I am not talking about copying and representation, TRANSLATING,

I disagree with my original, I dis and agree with my original, if I am confused so will my original be seen, as confused,

What am I doing when I have a non-defined language to translate from or to?

No dots only comas,

Hooman Sharifi, born and raised in Iran, now a Norwegian Citizen. Came solitarily to Norway in 1989 at the age of 15. His experience in dance started with hip-hop and street-jazz. Later, at the age of 21, came the technical training of classical ballet and modern dance. In 1997 he was accepted to the 3-year course in choreography with the National College of Ballet and Dance in Oslo, from which he graduated in spring 2000. He has always had interest in the “cross-work” of dance and theatre, and after graduating he has worked with dramatic as well as visual art. In 2000 he established Impure Company. The statement “art equals politics” where social awareness and commitment defines the word politics, marks the outset for Impure Company and signifies what art is and should be.
