Instant composition for cello & dance
Observe the empty space between inhaling and exhaling.
Trap into the silence between the words.
Things disappear, only the last substance remains.
Forms disappear, only the formless remains.
Definitions disappear, the undefined remains.
But this very pure space is there before anything comes into being.
Cello: Hannes Buder
Dance: Sarah Jegelka

Sarah Jegelka is a professional dancer based in Berlin. Sarah likes to find new ways of connecting and expressing different arts through movement. Fascinated by the notion of touching the unconscious inherent in movement, she has chosen to further her research in the area of instant composition and mind-body connection, studying western and eastern medicine and philosophies.
