The Shape Of Stillness – A Pulse

In The Shape of Stillness – A Pulse, Vena presents dance as a form of meditation. It combines dance and spoken word to ask, ‘What happens when we connect with the pulse of stillness within the movement?’ Can we bring the depth of meditation into intricate dance? The piece is based on the yogic principle that creation emerges from a still point, develops into complex patterns and returns to stillness. Geometric patterns and fluid shapes of classical Indian dance are accompanied by punchy percussion and the melodies of a solo voice.
