Editorial Reviews

DVD 1: Dances of Ecstasy is a mesmerizing journey into the world of ecstasy experienced through rhythm, dance and music. Interweaving traditional and contemporary ecstatic dance rituals, Michelle Mahrer and Nicole Ma's celebrated documentary film explores how different people around the world connect with a divine power. Orisha priestesses from Nigeria and Brazil and shaman healers from the Kalahari and Korea pulse to the same beat as thousands of young people at an all-night techno dance party in an Australian forest. The many different experiences of trance are linked by the human need to connect with a spiritual dimension. Dances of Ecstasy is a visual and aural feast for the senses - blending exciting dance rituals, hypnotic imagery, interviews and a spellbinding global music soundtrack.

Visit Namibia (San), Korea (Kut), Nigeria (Yoruba), New York (Gabrielle Roth), Brazil (Candomble), Turkey (Whirling Dervishes), Morocco (Hadra), USA (Firedance) and Australia (Rainbow Serpent Festival) during a trance journey into divine sources of universal energy.

Enjoy four illuminating documentaries about various rituals portrayed in the film, or select the filmmakers' audio commentary which describes their experiences while shooting all around the globe. Finally, there is the opportunity to have a closer look at Sufi dervishes' whirling ritual in an extended portrait of this fascinating ceremony. 'Dances of Ecstasy is a workout for the soul' - Gabrielle Roth

DVD 2: Join in and 'do it yourself' with a complete Power Wave workout by New York urban shaman Gabrielle Roth, or dance your own dance to the global grooves tracks, with psychedelic visuals by D-Fuse:

Introduction: The two DVD set `Dances of Ecstasy - A Sensory Journey Through Rhythm, Dance And Music' is an overall entertaining and informative though somewhat incomplete examination of rhythmic movement and the role it plays in attaining mystical experience.

Summary:
The first disc is presented in documentary format spiriting the audience off to various locations around the globe to introduce us to how various spiritual traditions use rhythmic music and dance as an integral component to obtain divine presence. Our journey begins in New York with an introduction by Gabrielle Roth and then whisks the viewer off to such exotic locales as Namibia, Korea, Turkey, Australia, Brazil and several others destinations.

The second disc titled `The Power Wave' is a instructional program geared to those who wish to respond to the information presented in the first disc and desire to learn how to incorporate dance or rhythmic movement into their own spiritual practices. This dance gestalt is presented by Gabrielle Roth in her New York studio. She outlines what she considers to be the five universal rhythms; flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness. As Ms. Roth discusses the nuances of each rhythm a group of students gyrate across the wooden studio floor to visually demonstrate her narrated lesson.

Critique: I enjoyed the first disc. The script was well conceived, intelligent and followed with the on screen visuals and the musical soundtrack. I think the films attempt to present solid reasoning for the true spiritual seeker to discard their reliance on intellectual processes and surrender to universal frequencies in order to attain higher spiritual awareness was overall successful.
