Moving into the Infinite

Moving into the infinite - a dance movie for the big screen is born! Now it is ready to be released into the world!

Enjoy the glimpse!

The film is a declaration of love to that which is truly alive and inherent in all cultures, religions and human hearts. Impossible to categorize, the film alternates between scenes of dramatic intensity, probing interviews, and poetic magic. It invites the viewer to introspect, to reflect one´s own life story and to discover the secret inherent in all stories.

About the desire for truth in the guise of dance

A young woman, thrown from a state of innocence, sets out onto a spiritual quest. She follows an inner longing and discovers her calling to dance for god. As she travels the world, she meets and dances with people from different cultures, traditions and religions, finding common ground in the heart. A cosmic love story, «Moving into the Infinite» invites us on a mystical journey. Art, spirituality, peace research, human ecology, therapy, and community become the venues of the dance. Through its interviews with diverse people from 12 countries including Iran, Turkey, Thailand, Israel, and Palestine, differences melt away. What appears foreign at first reveals a deeper intimacy as we witness moments of initiation, conflict and celebration. Devadasi (Sanskrit: Servant of God) is one name for a traditional temple dancer in India. The story of this modern Devadasi – her projects and journey – serves to shed light on the intention and nature of temple dance, beyond borders of tradition and religion.

The film seeks to go beyond the differences, beyond fear of touch, and to penetrate into that which is common. ’Moving into the Infinite’ is an invitation to break down borders and to grow beyond one’s own horizon. In the film, the story of a grandmother displays this beautifully. Having experienced utmost cruelty, she is able to overcome feelings of rage, hatred and revenge, inspiring her entire family to seek reconciliation and peace.
