Dance Film Project

MANDALA goes global. A follow up, world spanning dance film project?

In group formation, we initiate a prayer wheel through dance. The short film MANDALA is born.

Mudra Mantra Mandala – the sacred in dance is an advanced training programme offered 2024/2025. It could serve as a basis for an aditional, world sppaning dance film project. Among the basic practices of Devadasi school, the five roles of the MANDALA choreography will be taught. A possible vision for the future: graduates will set up their own MANDALA dance groups in their home towns. We dance in different countries and various locations: MANDALA in front of Cologne Cathedral, on the beach in Portugal, in the holy city of Assisi, at the freeway stop, in the Negev Desert in Israel, in the red desert of Namibia with elders from a local tribe, with shamans in Mongolia, in downtown Manhattan, etc…. We film these scenes and compose its content into a MANDALA follow-up film. Another gift to the world of our time.

Would you like to take part and/or contribute to its realization?

Temporary Dance Monastery

How would it be to integrate sacred dance in your day? How would it be to gather with like minded ones in order to deepen the practice and to immerse yourself in profound research? The temporary dance monastery allows a first experience into this direction.

Dance pilgrims come together to unite for initial 10 days. A set daily routine gives us orientation and stability. Times for community and solitude, activity and rest give us an inspiring and invigorating rhythm. Our spiritual practice through dance according to the Devadsi School of is our mutual focus. Elements of our daily practices are: Individual and communal prayer, silent meditation, mantra singing, dance practice, spinning dance rituals, times in silence, cooking and eating lunch together, doing everyday chores in and around the house, individual walks and times for retreating lay ahead of us.

Moving on Red Sand


“You have to come and dance in the red desert,” Visolela Rosa Namises said to me about 5 years ago. The time for this dedication has come. I will meet up with her, her daughter Nesindano Namises who is a poet, the dancer Haymich Olivier, Cinematograph Eckart Reichl  and his assistant Elisabeth Uta Glinka in Windhoek.

We follow our hearts almost blindly – and yet the call is so evident and clear. Something wonderful is about to unfold.

Preliminary investments have already been made. Financial support is most welcome. Soon after our pioneering trip in May, I will be able to tell you more…
