summer takes a break

...sort of a wet intermezzo, let's hope the warmth of sun will come back
and here is my intermezzo we performed two weeks ago
my friend Florence especially came from Berlin to take some shots (and the most beautiful  in the run before the main performance : they show much better the light & atmosphere in the vault and my idea behind); the show was successful, many people found the way to see it, thought for us it was an interesting experience dancing in the basement where the space was a little limited : lifting legs even higher to not hurt somebody...
decided to combine the different takes in the video (with and without audience) and
hope you can get a good impression ... enjoy :)

and here is a piece we worked out last year
my great thanks to Mr. Jäger who made this nice Video for us

looking forward

here is a small combination, it was just an idea at the beginning- unfortunately unrealizable : our first meeting (in winter) to plan the this year's "Tanz OWL" 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... though the combi is still a part of the dance... enjoy :)

Clement Town - Dehradun

....prayer wheels or wheels of lives ?

- Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.
Suffering follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draws it.

- Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think.
Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.

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

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
