With a group of multidisciplinary explorers, using dance and parkour as mediums to explore the nature of mind and the potential of the future, I want to set up performance projects led by professionals in their respectable fields in various different environments.
The projects invite locals of all age, level and experience to participate as performers even without any prior experience. The group of multidisciplinary artists leading the project are risk- and change-designers. The impact of our environment and our social interactions (even while in isolation) define our choices and shape our perception. The design that we (un)consciously develop in our mind and our nervous system while dealing with the risks in life that we are facing, will define our understanding of time and will mislead it or nourish the life that we are living. This is what our physical practice needs to explore.
The aims with Being A-part is to work on the development of the audience in the arts and the artistic development of the audience. We want act locally, to educate the local population and bring them closer to the local art and artists. We want to see a higher level of engagement in theater and other forms of art. We want to be able to lead open discussions and to do that we would like to intrigue and charm the audience by making them a part of the magic. Our mission is re-enchantment.
“ In the esoteric schools of thought a Tibetan parable is told. According to the story, a man without awareness is like a carriage whose passengers are the desires, with the muscles for horses, while the carriage itself is the skeleton. Awareness is the sleeping coachman. As long as the coach man remains asleep the carriage will be dragged aimlessly here and there. Each passenger seeks a different destination and the horses pull different ways. But when the coachman is wide awake and holds the reins the horses will pull the carriage and bring every passenger to his proper destination. In those moments when awareness succeeds in being at one with feeling, senses, movement, and thought, the carriage will speed along on the right road. Then man can make discoveries, invent, create, innovate, and “know.” He grasps that his small world and the great world around are but one and that in this unity he is no longer alone. “ – Moshe Feldenkreis
