THE BODY AS A SANCTUARY.

CONSTANTINE BAECHER AND KAITLYN GILLILAND:

THE BODY AS A SANCTUARY.

Dance may be viewed as a practice of identity - a discipline to form or regain a sense of self.

Physical practice and repetiton turn off the explaining - linguitic aspects of cognition and allow the body to be wholly present, to reach a state of 'pure' movement.

Dancers/ Choreographers Constantine Baecher and Kaitlyn Gilliland will explore physical and spiritual practices-ritual, meditation and repetitive movement-used to access body as a santuary.

They will investigate ways that energy and emotion take human form,the potential to create dance 'steps' from a place of energy/emotion rather than technique/autonomy, and how movement grows, hanges and erode through time and repetition.

These studies will respond to the landscape and ethic of Shillim.

  • Amazing estate at unbelievable proximity from Mumbai. I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and daughter, and the summary is that my four-year-old daughter wants to come back to this place.

    This place is calm, serene and peaceful. Come here for a peace of mind in a piece of nature. I would rate each aspect of this resort as excellent. Check-in, Villa, Food, Butler Service, Location, Decor, ... everything above par. Luxury does not come free. Yes, the resort is expensive. But I'm not complaining. Chef cooked us a custom meal, outside of its menu; and he sure did a great job. Butler service is fantastic. He ensured complete comfort in every aspect of our stay. I came here to relax and was thoroughly rejuvenated during my stay. This is a very different type of Lonavla. Come here to be free from your phone, doorbell, alarms and TV.
