Motion & Dance Retreat
14-20 February 2016 Temenggungan, Banyuwangi
The program of the retreat will be a balanced training process between Silat, traditional dance and the classical music Kendang Silat. Motion & dance retreat offers an insight about the anthropological dance of the Temenggungan people and how they implement the dance in their social lives and costums.
According to Adrienne L. Kaeppler (2011) antrhopological dance is defined as ?a form of culture that resulted from the creative process that manipulates the human body in space and time. This form of culture, although the content is temporarily, is a visual manifestation of the social relations and may be subject of an elaborate system of aesthetics?.
The program is open to all who are interested in a cultural exchange with the community of heritage village Temenggungan as well as to learn together, have the dedication and the power of positive thoughts in the process to be traversed. In Motion & Dance Retreat we will learn daily the practice of Silat and traditional Gandung dance with highlights such as the study of Suaka Pasung Laksa at the beach Pantai Cemara at sunrise with Master Janoto Dul Haji. Suaka Pasung Laksa literally translated means Space Lock Onethousand and is an indegenious martial art wich channels the traits of human character in a positive flow. Additionally we will practice traditional dance on the Perkebunan Kopi Rakyat Gembong Sari hill to get a pure natural energy in the process of imitation of the motion and sound in nature. At the ancient dwells of Sekar Tanjung and the Kali Bendo waterfalls we receive powerful and meditative purification rituals with the holy water. In the evenings we will learn through readings, conversations and discussions about the martial arts philosophy and how to create inner peace.
