Ana (Bernard), Brazil
Stay at home mother, dancer, costume and setting designer
Swiss German Partner
Mother to 8 year old girl and 4 year old boy
I'm from Brazil. I'm a daughter of a diplomat, so we were moving from one place to another when I was a child. I lived in Geneva when I was very young, then I came back when I was seventeen, left again and finally came back in my late twenties. I studied architecture, but I stopped when I became a mother. It was too hard to reconcile those things. The studies weren't going very well anyway, but also there was no day care and I was very much confronted with myself. I thought: "What do I do? Do I try and work on my career, carry on with my studies and get a degree or do I just enter this new world which is opening up in front of me?" I was very much divided over it. And little by little I entered the motherhood completely. It doesn't even feel as if it was a choice. It just happened.
Although my architectural career hasn't worked out, I feel an artist inside. I started dancing when my daughter was born. There was this creative energy that was released and I carry on dancing. I am working on a dance performance exploring the movement and the beauty of everyday life. Even though I let go of my career, I have been able to express myself through dance.
