Pereybere, Grand Baie, Mauritius
Dance in natureAt an absolutely beautiful location in the North of Mauritius, looking out to the striking islet of 'Coin de Mer', you may be lucky enough to experience a synchronicity never to be repeated.
Imagine warm, tropical air, a spectacular view of the turquoise lagoon, beautiful crisp sound of amazing music, from Mozart to Radiohead that can be heard by the fisherman on the coral reef.
A group of contemporary dancers, practicing an unforgettable 1 hour sequence, a fusion, a story told with passion on the rocks, the sand, the grass and in the trees.
The timing so perfect that they reach the climax together with the setting of the burning sun.
The tears rolled down my cheeks from the pure emotion, the dedication, the perfect harmony of the elements with explosive dance movements ranging from crazy and wild to love duets, from perfect chaos to absolute harmony.
If you are ever lucky enough to reach Mauritius, you might witness this group practicing at the most unexpected places on the island.
They have danced on the famous seven colored earth on the mountains of Chamarel, amoungst the banyan trees at Pamplemousess, under waterfalls and in crystal pools.
In all my travels through Africa, Israel, Fiji and Mauritius, this was the highlight and still is. It stays with me forever and lifts my soul even in retrospect.
I am always prepared to catch them wherever they may be......and will never miss the opportunity.
