MOVEment: Iris Van Herpen x Russell Maliphant. Beyond the stereotypes and cliches, little is known to most of the world of the customs and traditions of the Gypsies.

Traditionally perceived as strangers, surrounded by distrust, they have always existed in isolated groups on the margins of developing European communities. But their contribution to the general cultural heritage, especially in music, dance and various handicrafts, is unquestionable.I have tried to make a plea for tolerance towards those whose lifestyles, religion, and rituals differ from our own.
