Architect of Motion

Bloggity by me. A hodgepodge of some of my favorite things; people, quotes, interweb places to visit, and random blurbs of my life.
I am consumed by dance and creating my own choreography. I hope to give as much insight into my process as possible, and I hope you find it interesting:)

The way to establish a relationship with Spirit and access the power of this creating principle is to continuously contemplate yourself as being surrounded by the conditions you wish to produce.

“There is a huge boom in the elderly population, not just in New York City but everywhere — we’re all living longer,” Kristin Sakoda said by way of introducing the importance of programs that address the “cultural, social, and economic life” of the aged. Sakoda is the program manager of one such effort: Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide (SPARC), a residency administered by the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and funded by the Department of the Aging.

This is beautiful! I just came back from Yellow Springs Senior Center. I went there for a dance with Parkinson’s Disease class. It was wonderful to see the seniors working through the class and finding their fullest range of motion!

FILM: “En Puntas” by Javier Perez

This video performance by Javier Perez features a ballerina whose shoes are extended by a set of sharp kitchen knives. She dances and twirls until reaching exhaustion, fighting to maintain balance on the lid of a grand piano. “The ballerina appears as an eerie figure expressing effort, sacrifice and pain in her strive for perfection. Both fragile and cruel…”

The Dance of the Whirling Dervishes (Mevlevihane)

To view more photos and videos of the Mevlevihane, visit the Galata Mevlevihanesi and Hz. Mevlana Türbesi location pages as well as the #Mevlevihanesi and #WhirlingDervish hashtags.

For visitors to Turkey, a glimpse of the Whirling Dervishes or "Mevlevihane" is a must for any sightseeing list. The Dervishes, whose name means ”those who have chosen the road of suffering,” begin each dance by greeting their master then removing a black coat, a symbol of the earthly world, to reveal a white dress that symbolizes purity or "safa." They start to whirl like the planets around the Sun, raising their right hands to the heavens and pointing their left hands to the earthly world.

The best place to witness the Whirling Dervishes is in the city of Konya, at the tomb of Sufi poet Celalatin Rumi who is said to have invented whirling when he first spun himself into trance there in the 13th century. In Istanbul, the Galata Mevlevihanesi is the most famous Mevlevi Whirling Dervish hall. Performances are held there every Sunday evening.
