My interest was in how movement/dance could be applied to our personal, interpersonal and group issues, and to a process of restoration. The central principle of my work was based on the application of metaphors in order to use movement/dance to process unconscious and conflicted material into higher degrees of consciousness and creative expression.
Amidst all the mixed emotions and feelings, there was a light that kept me going. I feel that it is a sacred bond between our being and our inner calling to dance, to rejoice in moving in our own colors and cadences, to flow through life with many reminders from our sacred dancing moments. These are the moments when we are truly ourselves, and that preciousness speaks through all cultures, ethnicities, genders and abilities.
“We soon realized the opportunities for international group movement collaboration were greater than ever before,” said Marilyn Green of the Guild and Trinity Movement Choir, “and those who were unable to fly into New York were now able to participate. Suddenly there were possibilities of dance offerings here and abroad that could be included.
how beautifully this medium allows the Sacred Dance Guild to embrace its motto, “Dancing the Sacred, Moving the World”. Virtually, whether as the total or a hybrid experience, expands our ability to fully embrace our mission and values.
Utilizing Marilyn Green’s knowledge of Laban terminology and Butoh technique, the choir presents a unique contribution to a Christian dance concert.
