that song

no plans , no projects ? many !  most days are only just way too short...
enjoy this piece as much as i love to dance it ( it's from my heart )

...and when i'm back from Baltic sea ...i'll edit my - waiting- for-so-long-time-and-still-very-present - impressions of India from last year ...and finally start to learn french ...and ...and ...who knows what ever else will come into or out of my head ---that's the plan so far :)

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

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, and the Katha Upanishad. The exciting interpretation of Eknath Easwaran is a wonderful read: "Essence of the Upanishads. A Key to Indian Spirituality" (edition 2009)
...and since i really can go on holiday now, i'm looking forward to reading this great book :)

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

so much energy and dynamic

i love it !


...and like a mirror is this impressing duet : the disaster of a deep, essential misunderstanding in a - eventually - hopeless relation chip shown in a very clear artistical form, it touches me even more because i know too good what it means...
but as sad as it is, it is a great piece created by two of the most interesting choreographers nowadays :

aleko choreography : Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet

no question takes time to make a video, but what is time ? it seems to be a very flexible 'something' ...
see my new video i have finally finished, it's more or less a dance-film and i call it "valse triste ?" - because of the music
though it isn't a question, it is the answer and it is a wonderful gift, a blessing

...wer weiß denn schon, was das bedeutet...
ehrlich gesagt wäre ich gerade lieber in Indien oder wo ganz anders : da wo es warm ist !

alles was existiert beinhaltet auch immer das Gegenteil : es gibt keinen Ton ohne Stille, keine Bewegung ohne Stillstand, kein Loslassen ohne Halten, keine Freude ohne Schmerz, keine Wärme ohne Kälte... und dazwischen liegen unendlich viele Fassetten
es ist vielleicht ganz gut, sich das immer mal wieder bewusst zu machen,
um das, was man scheinbar gerade nicht hat, trotzdem zu sehen

 ...back in germany, but not really'll take a while ( I guess)
and that's for sure: to India I'll go again !

it's time now

such a
positive energy
it's undescribable
dispite all the questions
it's time now !
a few more days and
i'll see the world from above and
i'll open my eyes
and take a deep breath
for the
grand pas de chat
that'll open the last heavy door

swan lake

it was a big surprise to see so many swans ( they must have been at least a hundred ) on a large lake where i stoped for a short break on my way into the "green heart of germany", to this very little town (far away from everything) to be there for two long weeks: forrest, river, clean air, the sky at night full of stars and  no computer, a good place - actually - for holidays, to relax...

fortunately there are always many ideas and possibilities to fill the time with more or less necessary actions:
here is an exemple for karma yoga ( that's the 'garden defender' version of virabhadrasana ;) naja, apple trees also have a right to get some sun

on the roof of the opera

Oslo, what a city ! for me the most impressing I've ever seen
 in the sea, on the sea, surrounded by water and hills, old and new and so different...

see more about my trip to scandinavia if you want :-)

11.Juli 2012 :
 one week for me and no projects, except one: to see something I haven't seen bevore...hhhm... : Scandinavia ! have never been there, now I'll take the chance to discover it's beauty, maybe...don't know where exactly I'll go, it's all open...I just want to stay where I like it and leave if I want to see something else, that's it  :-)
