ELVIRA VAN BOCHOVE  Transmitting through art


The Earthdance expresses the birth of the oceans and life on earth. 
On Earthday, 22 april 2011 the dance was performed at a charity event at the Nature- and environment Centre Weizigt in Dordrecht. 
I choreographed a circledance and worked with a group of women to weave a web of energy for the earth and waters.

Earthdance  2011
ritual dance

On behalf of this dance I build a large oceandrum. This is a bowl in which all sorts of seeds, nuts an shells are locked. By rolling the drum around it makes the sound of rolling waves. A group of women together rolled the drum and danced on the rhythm of a heartbeat.
