Energy: Lightly Visualized

Happy New Year!! Check out this sensational video by the Japanese group “Enra”:

“Being imprisoned within us, this sweetness and harmony struggle to get out and can only issue forth as beautiful patterns of movement…”
Domenico da Piacenza, one of the most influential Renaissance dancing masters, wrote this exquisite phrase in his treatise “On the Art of Dancing and Conducting Dances” in 1490. I am not generally a fan of multi-media dance projects, as they are often overly complicated, ill-timed, and leave the viewer asking, where was the dance? However, this one is a stunning visualization of Domenico’s words. It is the first time I have seen a visual representation of what a dancer feels when they are dancing: the center and flood of energy that a dancer manipulates through movement, subsequently sharing with other performers and the audience….what a beautiful thing to behold.
