CD: Solo Daff

SOLO DAFF 

They happen. Not often. But they are there. Those moments when everything becomes interconnected. Palpable – perceptible – audible.  Exempt of anything superfluous. Inspiration, reduced to ist essence: Truth, beauty, love. Sometimes a musician succeeds in transforming a concert into such a moment. And sometimes they even manage to capture this moment. Solo Daff is such a moment.

DVD: DOING THINGS

DOING THINGS

A ritual dance & music performance inspired by Ancient Egypt. Every day we are doing things and not much time is left for life itself. People in Ancient Egypt also had busy schedules and doing things had top priority. For them doing things meant communicating with the divine in magic rituals by drumming, singing and dancing.

DVD: Akhou

AKHOU

Akhou is a dance performance and has its source in the spiritual and aesthetic world of ancient Egypt. Akhou deals with the journey of the light and the soul and the duality associated with it. We examine it from every angle, from the tiniest particle to the divine; cells, breath, space and the universe. These processes take us into another dimension of time, movement and consciousness.

»Not a whisper, rustle or a cough. The audience is veiled in breathless silence.«

DVD: Abyad

ABYAD

Abyad – white – is the absence and the sum of all colours. White stands for the beginning and the end of life and symbolizes its cyclical course. Slowly, we become aware of ourselves and our own movements, apprehending and discovering our surroundings. In time with the beating of the drums, spirals slowly take control of the body´s axis. Circling, the bodies follow their course through space. Gradually, the diversity of life spreads out like a fan, until, finally, everything retreats to silence and a new beginning.
