Theory of Relativity

“The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so.The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after thewarrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue.” ~ Carlos Castaneda

A dance theater solo that deals with our perceptions of reality. Inspired by the books of Carlos Castaneda and Einstein’s legendary theory of relativity it explores the question of what we call real and true. Is this world just a projection from our mind or in fact solid and stable? Or is the truth in the eye of the beholder?

A piece that plays with lightness and darkness, reality and dream and combines pointe work of classical ballet, fine art and shibari techniques.

Choreography/Performance: Sonja Heller

Premiere: Estação Caneca – Espaço Cultural Trilhas da Arte, São Paulo, 08.06. 2012
