characterization of an esoteric kind of being with the help of the language of choreography and nature directing

a story about the movie

The inner being of the esoteric kind of being eighth paradise is characterized in by its third and fourth level of consciousness (look at the buddhistic teachings oft he soul). The attributes of the two levels of consciousness of the inner being of the cosmos are conveyed with the help of choreography, nature direction, costume, picture direction, light direction and music. The choreography aims at being coherent. The coherence of the choreography must not be completely given due to the improvisational elements of tai chi. The nature was chosen to convey the characteristics of the third and the fourth level of consciousness in the inner being of the kind of being. A story about the inner being of the eighth paradise is spoken about whereby a dramatical performance is aimed at. The eighth paradise is characterized by abstractions of the body direction whereby the corresponding imaginative object was the input of the tai chi movements that were not consciously controlled at the moment of the happening.

an insight into the esoteric kind of being

The inner being of the eighth paradise is characterized by extreme accomplishments with a high quantity, inner greatness, the triangle that shows upwards as well as the aristocracy in the Star of David, an extreme inner maturation process outside many diamonds, strenghth in the self and more attributes oft he inner being that approach the extremes. The story about the eighth paradise is about a struggle between solitude and confrontation with other humen. At the end it dies because there had taken place too many wrong treatments by the humen without the inner maturation process (handicapped people). It dies in ist extreme big heart.

working process

The preparations of the development of the choreography took several months. There were rehearsals that took place were imagination and a physical realization of the esoteric kind of being were practiced in a tai chi. The motion sequences were already known after the rehearsals even if every realization includes improvisational elements due to the tai chi. The practicings aimed at a coherent choreography that can be that can be possible even when it is a practice of tai chi. During the film works there were searched atmospheres in gran paradiso close to the French border in Italy and close to the grand saint Bernard close to the Swiss border in Italy that should characterize the appropriate kind of being.
