elements of dance
"Tactum - the Elements of dance" is anything but an ordinary dance film. Inspired by the basic concepts of Ayurveda, this exhilarating production of 2015, directed by Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Stasiak tells a variety of mesmerizing narratives, without the use of a single word. According to Ayurveda, our life is a dance of the three forces giving color to our existence. „Green“ Kapha is a combination of the elements of water and earth, "red" Pitta of fire and water, and "blue" Vata of air and ether. The film "Tactum - the Elements of dance" is a clash of masculine and feminine energies portraying the longing for simple truths and rules that can be rediscovered through changes taking place in nature. A forest, a city and a desert; touch and movement. Alternate: balance and its lack. Connection and separation – all those are the themes are what catches the viewers’ eye in Tactum.
