AUROVILLE S'INSTALLE EN AFRIQUE                       
Written by Chloe         Wednesday, 10 February 2010
Dans le sillage d'Auroville, d'autres initiatives bourgeonnent...En pleine savane africaine, au milieu d'une végétation sahélienne clairsemée, sur des sols pauvres, voici le premier Aurovillage... Hassan est venu pour la première fois à Auroville il y a 25 ans. Après avoir passé quelques mois à Auroville, il  rentre en France pour faire une formation en pépinière et arboriculture avec l'idée en tête de revenir s'installer à Auroville. Mais le destin en a décidé autrement. En effet son chemin à croisé celui de Pierre Rabih qui à l'époque montait un projet en agro-écologie au Burkina Faso.  Il passa un vingtaine d'année en Afrique de l'Ouest et créa L'Orange Bleue, ONG qui s'inspire de l'enseignement de Sri Aurobindo utilisant une approche intégrale.

In a solo contemporary dance performance at Bharat Nivas on 6th of February Atsushi Takenouchi showed us a different world of dance. He follows the Butoh way of dance which is almost fifty years old, and it was born as a part of spiritual revolution in 60ies all over the world. Butoh was body revolution without political connotation, and Atsushi told us that on the stage you can make any kind of movement, not only beautiful movement, dancers can express themselves as they like, they open their bodies to the movements without thinking. Dance is mixed performance of elements of improvisation on a given structure, and on music of mainly natural sounds, which Hiroko Komiya create with Atsushi.
