This two weeks were dedicated to a creation process about the fundamental of compassion, taken from Buddhism.This parts is one four parts of a bigger project Buddhism and dance project.
We worked on understanding the issue personally and globally. Our work included meditation and introduction to Buddhist philosophy.
Some of the questions that toke part in our process were:
Through the body, how can we treat ourselves and each other with compassion? How this state on mind affect your movement quality?
How is it to feel pain in the body? How is it to feel anther's people pain in my body?
What should I do to not be afraid of pain?
Witch process need to be done in the body to convert pain to compassion?
Through the work we want to give the audience and ourselves the ability to connect to each other, support,contain, to seek for common ground, rather than the differences. We are all here, sharing the gift of life, it is not forever,only temporary.
