Poetic Resistance ~ Book “Danser Résister” .
One minute of dance a day by Nadia Vadori-Gauthier :
“I live in Paris. On January 7, 2015, the evening of the Charlie Hebdo attack, I was deeply shaken. I came up with the project One Minute of Dance Every Day to manifest a sensitive and poetic presence in the world and connect heterogeneous intensities by putting myself into play, alone or in relation to others. I wanted to assign myself a daily action, small but concrete and reiterated, coherent with my beliefs and working towards a living poetry, while at the same time creating a distinct, discrete work of art (the reason I number my dances).
This single minute requires hours of work each day. Until I complete it, it haunts me. Once it’s out there, I let go of all other potential minutes for the rest of the day.” — Quote from leprixdelessence.net .

Samir Hamdard ~ Afghan Refugee Camp Brussels Beguinage Church ~ In March 2014 Kristen Cattell (USA) and Michel van der Burg (Holland) traveled to Brussels, Belgium to meet a group of Afghans living inside an old Catholic church – the church of Saint John the Baptist at the Béguinage (Beguinage Church). At the time, nearly one hundred Afghan refugees had set up camp within the walls of the seventeenth century compound. We made a reportage and interviewed several people including Samir Hamdard (Ahmad Samir Hamdard) .
Samir the tireless activist of peace, justice and solidarity, was the spokesperson for the afghan refugees in Belgium – he died following a terrible fire accident that happened today a year ago (July 2019).
We thank Samir Hamdard and the other Afghan refugee friends who welcomed us and gave the interviews (note : full report of the other interviews in a follow-up later). Special thanks to Isabelle Marchal and others whose works were on display in the church and are shown in this film. Félix Snyers on the Béguinage church pipe organ.
Special thanks also to priest Daniel Alliët – host of the camp – who when retiring in 2019 started a new life for the church as House of Compassion – officially March 21 , 2020 – @houseofcompassionbrussels – http://www.houseofcompassion.brussels .
