flowers... - like a sign of spring
but i also enjoy the snow, the fresh and clear air at the moment, "rising" light, prospect of spring
...and everything else too

here is a small combination, it's just an idea - unfortunately unrealizable : our first meeting for next "Tanz OWL" - taking place in the museum "Kaiserpfalz" this time -
i was very inspired by a special place deep down in that monumental building: the source of river Pader (actually it's called warm Pader) and i thought it would be really interesting to dance in this water, but logistically it wouldn't work as a live-performance and the water is definitely too cold for dancing, brrr...
so i made this little video instead : enjoy :)

diesmal bin ich ein bisschen spät, ich weiß, aber das Jahr ist noch jung und es ist noch nicht zu spät, es zu begrüßen
was ich wirklich wünsche - nicht nur für dieses Jahr, sondern überhaupt -
 ist Frieden !
...und Liebe, ja !
auch wenn das vielleicht banal klingen mag - in dieser Zeit, in der schon fast in Vergessenheit geraten ist, was das eigentlich ist,
... ich meine echte Liebe, denn sie ist die Basis für alles Wesentliche:
Vertrauen, Achtung, Mut, Hingabe, Freude, Inspiration, Kreativität, Offenheit ... und Frieden !
in diesem Sinne :  allen alles Gute für 2015

to be to just to be

if you want to find out more essentials about human being, read the interesting dialog between Nachiketa and Yama in the Katha Upanishad. The exciting interpretation of Eknath Easwaran is a wonderful read: "Essence of the Upanishads. A Key to Indian Spirituality" (edition 2009)

... the best book i've read in the last time !

a brief glimse of a beautiful piece :

Manuela Tessi (dance)
Paul Estabrook (choreography)
Alfredo Genovesi (music)

a piece
about that what we see everywhere around us
and that we don't see anymore
about that what we do
and that what we don't do anymore,
because we almost forgot what it is


Tanz OWL 2014  14. / 15. 6. Städtische Gallerie am Abdinghof

the wall midway through the space separates the six girls in two groups: both groups dance the same piece at the same time on either side of the wall

a fascinating place

built in the beginning of 12th century it grew in the next few hundred years to a rich and influential abbey. But Reformation in Germany ( 16 cent.) changed a lot and the monastery couldn't survive that time, it was destroyed, burned out and stays as a ruin for long time.
The space has an odd atmosphere of abandonment and even if you have the feeling nearly nothing remained from the primery power, it's a spellbinding place wich didn't lose its clear aesthetic and impressing beauty

really deep inside...

...went the twelve girls last saturday & sunday in our performance-project "Tanz am Kamp" : fascinating and catching the audience... and they really deserved the intensive applause, because they danced the piece honest, with passion and very very good, it was wonderful

 'deep inside'
choreo.: i. sentjabowa                music : f. russ /  h.d. courson

enjoy the video !

we all look for something, however we want to call it
as long as we search we won't find it
and we can't ever lose it
look deep inside

...sieht aus wie von Levitan oder Schischkin...
naja, immerhin ist es ja wenigstens über 0° und die Sonne kommt auch wieder
