Deep in Your Art is an interactive experience co-animated by Anaïs Amar & Ben: Stewart
It's great to have Anaïs & Ben sharing their gift together.
The Deep in your Art events are a collaboration of worldly/cultural arts with the purpose of exploring the psyche through performance and ritual art. The event in its totality will reflect the art of the audience. Each event will vary and evolve with the communication with the audience in attendance.
The purpose of these events is to express the unavoidable truth that we are all a unique piece of art.
Art being the process of life itself.
The ultimate intention of this interactive event is consciousness.
Through all the senses, this performance/workshop seamlessly travels through an interactive talk with the audience, spoken word, intuitive dance and meditation.
Ben & Anais’s performance/workshop gives a modern artistic expression of a shamanic vision quest for the heart and mind to travel. The audience is offered a safe environment in which to let go of all stress.
The entire event is built around audience participation.
The overall mission of Deep in your Art is to illuminate the manner in which we lie to ourselves rather than to eliminate the lie and therefore remove the opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.
Should we underestimate the importance of the simple maintenance of our body and psyche, the inevitable result is disease in all of it's forms.
Ben's presentation is based around bringing our awareness into everyday behavior in order to show how we unconsciously contribute to the condition of society. Every word we utter, every thought we have, and every emotion is a reflection of our over complicated perception. When we over complicate our perception, we stress our body into over compensating for a threat that doesn't even exist. In essence, Ben shows us that the pinnacle of our intelligence is in fact the controlling power above all political, religious, and socio-economic corruption. The manner in which we perceive every impression from the outside world moment by moment has a materialized twin in our life. When we consciously choose the quality of our perception we will then see clearly the esoteric agenda that shapes our government and media into the machine it has become.
By using simple breathing techniques and with the help of body awakening practices, Anaïs will create a space in which we'll be able to let the dance come to us. Since our breathing is the generator of our movement, it allows us to better tune into our bodies, to identify blocked or open inner spaces, to free what needs to be released, to become conscious of our inner flows and heartbeats, to understand our structure, and to embrace our emotions.
By gradually breathing into the spine and expanding the breath to our whole body, the movement becomes spontaneous, awake and aware. As we Dance, we embark onto a deep, simple and honest journey within ourselves…
Contact dance invites us to approach the concept of conscious relationship, being aware of the attention and intention between one another, and to feel the great Joy that exists in both giving and receiving. Together, we will explore both our inner and outer spaces in a caring and respectful way for ourselves, others, and our world.
Their work focusing on bringing us closer to who we are, towards our own hearts, is a unique support in our process of reconciling in ourselves what we once believed to be a duality.
Allowing us to softly reunite the complex set of opposed forces within us. This same forces, vital energy that flows through the universe, making each of us a unique and irreplaceable being.
