This spring we initiated our Gyre Labs, which take place in the beautiful dance space at the Centre des Arts du Grütli in Geneva. Our first series of 7 labs started in March.

Our idea is to bring people together and explore forms of non verbal communication over a period of time. We chose different themes to explore: 1- Listening, 2 – The Word as Magic, 3 – Rhythm and Universe,...

"We take from the earth and say please. We give back to the earth and say thank you." says Julia Parker, a Kashia Pomo.

Giving back to nature can be to express gratitude or thanks. It can be to sing, play music. It can be to give back something natural like a flower...Today I gave back at a place in Berlin Grunewald, that is a "second hand" natural spot. It is a former sand pit...

In this video we give a short insight into our work with the voice. We use masks to help us change our perspective. The mask, held in front of our face, creates a closed intimate space.

The books of Theodor Schwenk, "Sensitive Chaos" and "Water, the Element of Life", have deeply influenced Gyre Project.

Schwenk (1919-1986) was a German flow and water researcher. In 1960 he founded the Institute for Fluid Science at Herrischried in the Black Forest. His principal work, The Sensitive Chaos, appeared in 1962. This work is inspired in particular by the anthr...

"To serve the cause of water adequately...we must get to know it in its true being. And how do we do this? Why, by treating it in the very way exemplified by its own behaviour, that is, whenever we encounter it, we wash the tablet of our souls clean of all other impressions in order to allow the being of water to make its imprint on us."
