Cosmos amateur workshop project

Cosmos has now developed another form: movement workshops with amateurs. They will shortly be starting in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in response to interest from the  local artistic and spiritual communities. This began in Paris in 2010 as a cutting-edge research project, Practical Theology of the Body. Working with colleagues in the Theology of the Arts section of the Institut Catholique de Paris, Cosmos director Dominic White began with weekly sessions of relaxation, meditation and improvised movement.

Cosmos on the labyrinth

The Echo républicain newspaper (26 June 2011) hailed the “astonishing choreography” of Lambert Vadrot’s interpretation of Cosmos at Chartres cathedral on 24th June. The Indian dancer, working on the labyrinth of the cathedral, brought Cosmos to new heights before hundreds of pilgrims who had come to the “Night of the Cathedrals”, a celebration of Midsummer’s Night, which is also the birthday of the Christian prophet St. John the Baptist.

Cosmos Chartres
24th June 2011, 9.30 pm and 11 pm

A “nuit blanche” (« white night ») will take place at Chartres Cathedral on Friday 24th June, when it will stay open until midnight. From 7.30 pm, music, poetry, dance and silence will fill the space and accompany your exploration of the cathedral.
Why 24th June ? It’s close to the summer solstice, the natural hight-point of the year ; and for Christians, it’s the birthday of St. John the Baptist, the forerunner of the Christ, who would come to reconnect heaven and earth.

On that night, Indian dancer Lambert Vadrot will interpret three of the Cosmos dances on the cathedral labyrinth. These three form the central section of Cosmos, The Rites of Spring. The first dance, The Secret, is a rain-dance and a dance of love. The Sacrifice is an uncompromising confrontation with the darkness of evil and guilt. Regeneration reveals to us the energy beyond words of life which has risen from the dead.

The dances will be performed twice during the evening, at 9.30 and 11. Each performance will last about half an hour.
