CAELESTIS CARNIS – dancing Skies across infinite Light
Intensive Butoh Workshop with Alessandro Pintus
From 13th to 20th September 2015 at Frauenseeweg, 6600 Lechaschau, Austria
“Imagine there’s no heaven, It’s easy if you try, no hell below us, above us only sky”
This event is the final stage of a trilogy of workshops that we began in 2013. The first investigation said trilogy was dedicated to the element earth and the underworld. Last year we worked on the concept of the tree as a link between what is below and what is above. This year we’ll end our research exploring the Uranian world, the sky upon us and the universe all around our planet.
The theme of the workshop is focused on the element air and the idea of the sky as a creative space, which surrounds us and is the origin of our dance-life. At every age, human beings have always looked up at the sky wondering about the meaning of life and its origin. People have always dreamed of traveling into space in search of their roots, because we belong to the sky, and one day, we will come back to source of our existence. To begin a journey up to the deep outer space, we first need to create the universe here and now. We need to transform our material body into a spiritual substance, in order to become light and shining like a clear sky, like a bright sun. Let’s dance, inviting the firmament to descend onto the earth, and then we’ll be ready for the heaven.
The macro is in the micro. What is above is mirrored in what is below. The heaven has his own body. Our flesh is similar to the sky. We are made from the same matter of the stars. We are sons of the stars. Our planetary body is a dancing little star, which one day will be bright like the sun. Celestial bodies that dance across the infinite light, through the eternal time. This workshop it will be a travel back to the origins of our heavenly body, a path that leads back to the beginning of the times, to the genesis of life as we know it. A backward walk along the tree of life. Dancing in the direction of the sky, we’ll embrace again our ancient ancestors.
The work is open to everybody even without previous experience. In addition to an indoor dance training, special attention will be addressed to the work outside in nature. At the end of the week there will be a final performance event open to an audience.
On September 19, 5 pm the participants of the workshop „CAELESTIS CARNIS – dancing Skies across infinite Light“ demonstrate the results of their intensive work in the final performance „Dancing little stars“.
