« From the spirit state to the materialization of dance leaving its ephemeral traces in space and time, as well as the music and the calligraher's hand ; we can approach what Rumî calls the love-source that cannot be understood with intellect, but known only as a person is known. This illumination of music, song, dance, gestures created on paper and projection is where we can attempt to find a sacred space where this can happen. « The ear is in the center of the chest...hear what's behind I say ».
The deep spiritual impact of Rumî's poems, Kudsi Erguner's music, the calligraphy of Hassan Massoudy, and the visual poetry of dance, I believe will create the harmony of a soul's journey towards illumination ».
