বিশ্বনৃত্য দিবসের বাণী

April 30, 2013

গান গাইতে পারি না, খেদ আছে, কম — নাচতে পারি না, এটা আমার জীবনের সবচেয়ে বড় খেদ। সবচেয়ে আদিম, আদিম অভিব্যক্তি, নাচ, অবশ্যই। সেই প্রথম মানবিক বিশ্বকে প্রকৃতির গ্রাস থেকে রক্ষার মুদ্রা আগে এসেছিল মন্ত্র নয়। নিজেকে নৃত্যনিবিষ্ট রেখেছি সবসময়, একবারে চটুলতম মুদ্রা থেকে ধ্যানগম্ভীরতম মুদ্রা আমাকে স্পন্দিত করে, সেস্পন্দন অনন্তের — অনন্ত গতির বিচিত্র অভিব্যক্তির।


আজ ২৯ এপ্রিল বিশ্ব নৃত্যদিবস। এদিবসের প্রেক্ষাপট


International Dance Day (IDD)

In 1982 the Dance Committee of the ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet.

The intention of the «International Dance Day Message» is to celebrate Dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language – Dance.

Every year a message from an outstanding choreographer or dancer is circulated throughout the world. The personality is selected by the founding entity of the International Dance Day – the International Dance Committee of the ITI, which collaborates with World Dance Alliance, a Cooperating Member of the ITI.

Together with the World Dance Alliance, ITI and its Dance Committee celebrate International Dance Day at UNESCO in Paris.

এবারের বিশ্ব নৃত্যদিবসের বাণীর জন্য নির্বাচিত হয়েছেন তাইওয়ানের নৃত্যপরিকল্পনাবিদ লিন হোয়াই-মিন ( Lin Hwai-min)।


Message from Lin Hwai-min, Founder/Artistic Director, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan

It is said in the Great Preface of “The Book of Songs,”
an anthology of Chinese poems dating from the 10th to the 7th century BC:

The emotions are stirred and take form in words.
If words are not enough, we speak in sighs.
If sighs are not enough, we sing them.
If singing is not enough, then unconsciously
our hands dance them and our feet tap them

Dance is a powerful expression.
It speaks to earth and heaven.
It speaks of our joy, our fear and our wishes.
Dance speaks of the intangible, yet reveals the state of mind of a person and
the temperaments and characters of a people.

Like many cultures in the world, the indigenous people in Taiwan dance in circle.
Their ancestors believed that evils would be kept out of the circle.
With hands linked, they share the warmth of each other and move in communal pulses.
Dance brings people together.

And dance happens at the vanishing point.
Movements disappear as they occur.
Dance exists only in that fleeting instant.
It is precious. It is a metaphor of life itself.

In this digital age, images of movements take millions of forms.
They are fascinating.
But, they can never replace dance because images do not breathe.
Dance is a celebration of life.

Come, turn off your television, switch off your computer, and come to dance.
Express yourself through that divine and dignified instrument, which is our body.
Come to dance and join people in the waves of pulses.
Seize that precious and fleeting moment.
Come to celebrate life with dance.

  1. The body should catch up to the tune, the hands must explain the meaning, the eyes must speak the emotion, and the feet must beat the time-measure.
