 SpiralArts Dance Theatre Company Vision

              

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 earth.

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 and power.

SpiralArts aims to provide a structure within which people of all ages, from all walks of life can share their skills, explore new perspectives and feel creatively fulfilled under the experienced guidance of members of the company, and a base where artists and others can come to and go from feeling enriched, empowered and inspired.
