Tradere is a personal reflection of the artist on the word "tradition" and on its related connotations in the creation of movement in time and space. Tradition is the set of knowledge, customs and beliefs that get handed down from generation to generation, growing in value for the culture of a territory. Tradere seeks to investigate certain western traditions that involve the body; a body that exposes itself and sacrifices its physical integrity, endangering it, in the name of popular belief, love and a sense of community.
