Rhea Harmoush

Giclee on Canvas 100x120cm

Rhea Harmoush is a professional dancer and choreographer who helps others find their inner strengths, work hard on mastering them in the aim of becoming the best version of themselves for their personal aspiring goals. She uses all styles of movement and body expressions to facilitate that.
Rhea worked for 12 years in advertising and marketing firms but dance was always her accomplice. She adopted her ethics and values learnt in the studios and from her dance mentors to climb her way up the corporate ladder. She ultimately decided to manifest all her life experiences in the one goal she ever had which was dance. Studying human behaviour and communicating with high creativity was a boiled down version of what her job was all about. She then decided to take this and apply it on passionate people rather than on a product. She combined it with all her life experiences and nurtured her love for dancing, performing, teaching and creating. That is now the path she has taken to achieve more soulful work.
Rhea aims to inspire anyone who has a passion for dance and create a space to nourish it.

Céline

Giclee on Canvas 100x150cm

Céline is an architect and a professional dancer. Her intense passion for art first sparked at a very early age, largely due to the influence of her father who was a painter. She has been taking dance classes for 20 years and represented her dance school in annual shows, events, and music videos. Although she’s been working as an architect for 8 years, her spare time has always been filled with thousands of dance classes as well as teaching where she was able to work with her students and pass them her passion and energy. Dance has always helped her surpass life’s obstacles and became a way of expression and her language…

Venustas (Beauty)

Giclee on Canvas 100x150cm

Is it possible to identify a universal sense of beauty? A definition of beauty that can be applied to all people at all times? Don’t our ideas of beauty shift and fight and transform themselves in different times and spaces?
Marcus Vitruvius – inspired Giacomo Andrea who in turn inspired Leonardo Da Vinci (Vitruvian Man) – thought that a timeless notion of beauty could be learnt from the ‘truth of nature’, and that nature’s designs were based on universal laws of proportion and symmetry.

Firmitas (Strength)

Giclee on Canvas 100x150cm

Is it possible to identify a universal sense of beauty – a definition of beauty that can be applied to all people at all times? Don’t our ideas of beauty shift and fight and transform themselves in different times and spaces?
Marcus Vitruvius, the famous Ancient Roman architect, believed that an architect should focus on three central themes when preparing a design for a building: Firmitas (strength), Utilitas (functionality), and Venustas (beauty). He believed that the body’s proportions could be used as a model of natural proportional perfection and showed that the ‘ideal’ human body fitted precisely into both a circle and a square, and he thus illustrated the link that he believed existed between perfect geometric forms and the perfect body. In this way, the body was seen as a living rulebook, containing the fixed and faultless laws set down by nature.
