Sacred Body

SACRED BODY

Do we consist only of matter?

Is the body the garment of the soul?

What is the meaning of Incarnation?

Is Sacred Body the body that becomes one?

One with what?

What is Sacred and what is its antipode?

.

The new work of Asomates Dynameis Dance Company is dedicated to the search of the meaning of “sacred” as it is expressed through the body.

Five dancers present their personal voyage through the experiences of the body, expressing a wordless logos that communicates symbols and archetypes of our common memory as well as images that speak of desire, birth, love and power.

Sacred Body becomes a field where the body reflects upon its own nature, dancing the incarnation, the experience of being together, the ecstasy and the sacrifice.
