Meditation for art (PHOTOS)
In Uzhgorod, young poets and musicians arranged a soiree of meditation. That's how they imagine the creative process, and the audience could join this event.
"Only in a special state of mind and soul, one can create something special, something real. To understand the idea of a creator, you need to tune to a common energy level that will unite the thoughts and feelings of different people into a whole, - that was the prologue to the soiree by the poet Marichka Chernychko. That's why the organizers of the event began it with chanting the tantra "AUM" - so that each of the participants and guests of the event was able to abstract from everyday thoughts and immerse themselves in creativity.
This was indeed the case. Olga Yonash, for example, surprised with extremely colorful poem about a shepherd, and then read the essay... about soul washing. And right during the performance, she wrote a new poem. Interesting improvisation was performed by Yulianna Khomenko and Vasyl Tsanko. The violinist and the pianist were as if making love in music, exciting the imagination, creating a sense of depth in the soul. Mariana Kalyniy beautifully performed several pieces by contemporary authors. According to the musician, "the meditative atmosphere of the event nurtured creativity. It was so nice to play, I felt relaxed and inspired. Everything created a particular state of mind!". Yulianna Khomenko also recited some of her own poems.
And the organizer and participant of the "Creativity as Meditation" Marichka Chernychko impressed everyone with erotic intimate poetry, which she dedicated to... forest! The nature was "an ardent lover" touching the body. And her spiritual poetry contrasted with the usual, but too explicit images of the author.
The co-organizer of the event, who conducted a master class on the waltz, Denis Demenko, was satisfied. Because the atmosphere was excellent: "We became a unified whole in art. I was particularly impressed by openness of the people who participated in a contact improvisation. This dance technique teaches to feel your body, to understand the needs of partner and give in to their lead."
Summing up the evening, you can definitely say one thing: the organizers have achieved their goal. "We wanted a unique result - the harmony between the worlds of poetry, dance and music. But we have done more - passed this harmony to each participant of the soiree" - Marichka Chernychko said.
