Every person has his/her own unique ‘touch,’ and the way we move and use our hands shows something about our character. I was really struck when I first saw a group of Korean women performing on stage~ the way they used their hands was like a revelation to me. I couldn’t stop staring! I’d never seen hands move like that~ so expressive, so alive.
I’m an American, and maybe my origin also influences the way I use my hands: quickly, efficiently, and with strength and certainty.
Jean is Belgian. The way he uses his hands is entirely different. His touch is gentle and slightly hesitant. The way he holds the steering wheel when he drives, the way he pats the cat. We are totally opposite extremes!
