This performance is made around the theme of " rainbow " , but actually the most powerful source of inspiration has always been the exceptionally glowing energy & the steaming passion from the gererous dancers of the Theaterschool, Modern dance department 2nd+3rd year students.
As spectacular event as the rainbow in the sky, the Dance is the art of " the moment " which many people could share at once, and which disappears as soon as it appears, without leaving anything behind but the everlasting movement in the heart of the spectators.
And as you know, when you mix all colors of rainbow, it will become transparent ( do we say this is disappearance of colors ? ) as it is the original color of the sunlight.
It is surprising to hear how fast the sunlight can travel.
The sun light can travel straight the distance of 7.5 times round the globe per one second(!).
But when going through the water drops / raindrops in the air, the sunlight will be reflected and refracted inside the raindrop, and that makes the speed of the sunlight slowing down. The " new time " is created when the water digests the light. And that is exactly the moment we witness the rainbow in the sky over there.
You know very well that we are all made of water...dropping tears from the heaven, evaporating souls which circulates the whole world.
A dancer should be somebody who commits to transform the quality of time.
Now, the dancers are standing on stage, facing towards the light, facing towards you...
When you see the rainbow, you remember that the Sun is always shining right behind your back. Yes, the rainbow is a colorful shadow of yourself in that particular moment.....maybe......???
