When one stands still and quiet for a
while in an environment of
natural beauty, a new dawn of experience spreads over one, dimensions
deepen and perceptions sharpen. The world seems to dance, sing and play
with form and non form, as the wind plays the leaves of a tree.
All around is the drama of life spiralling
between the power of light and the mystery of shade, set in an ever
changing collage of colour, texture, form and shape. In an instant we
are the flight of a bird, the stealth of a cat, the strength of a bull,
the spring of a deer or the roar of water as it falls to earth. We soar
on the song of the lark at dawn, we dance the rhythms of the heart of
The realisation that we are, each and every one
of us, a dancer in the drama of life, brings a sense of peace, joy and
wonder at the magical chemistry of it all and an overpowering feeling
of being truly alive, an individual expression of a whole experience.
It is our vision to bring this awareness back
into people’s lives, distilled through the medium of our
personal universe – the body. Also to recreate this natural
drama – manifest through dance, drama, music and voice
– in the theatre, a place where imagination takes form, magic
happens and insights are revealed.
To achieve this we work directly with the body.
In classes, workshops and rehearsals we find ways to release anxieties,
needless tensions, outmoded attitudes and techniques that stand in the
way of the freeflow of our own creative expression. We work with
natural and original movement forms derived from the wisdom and
dimension of Eastern practices and the self expression of Western
Contemporary Dance, that create powerful internal and external
vibrations. We are building a way of working and moving that can
underlie and empower all forms of artistic life expression.
For us it is through the body that true
connections are made. It is when the body/mind is relaxed, open and
energised that inspiration can enter. By focusing the mind in the
moment through the body we empower what we do with vitality and spirit,
and are able to express the essence of what we do with both simplicity
