I was looking for some video clips to include with some stories in Subud Voice when I stumbled across this one.

It is the acclaimed French dancer Sylvie Guillem, dancing with the assistance of some companions to Ravel’s Bolero.

Sylvie was an acclaimed classical ballerina but now dances modern and experimental works.

Perhaps this video clip is not every Subud members’ idea of  “true human culture” – the word “passion” comes to mind – but anyone would have to admire her extraordinary skill, precision,beauty and grace, surely human qualities.
