praying while dancing
An investigation in the relationship between heightened consciousness and dance. Dance as an act of praying. How do we make a dance of gratitude, a dance of connecting with something that is bigger than us, a dance of calling for transformation or healing, a dance of resistance, emancipation and change? When we accept that, dance provokes vibrations that are able to influence our brain, our heart, the space around us. We need to investigate how we can put our intentions for change in the way we move. Everyone will create is his, her, their own dance prayer, because everyone has his, her, their universe, she, he, they want to pray for. What kind of choreography, movements, gestures and poses awaken the body to become a channel for energies of change, a magic channel for the transformative power of life force in connection with nature and society?
