‘Gurdjieff sacred dances to return to New York’

And now for something completely different: Gurdjieff Movements will be staged in New York City for the first time in a long time. From the publicity:

Gurdjieff Sacred Dances
and Exercises
Sunday, May 21
Noon, 3:30 & 7:30 p.m.
Miller Theatre at Columbia University
2960 Broadway
Tickets: $20-$25 here

These dances, called “Movements,” are practiced as part of the spiritual teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff. Based on ritual dances from ancient traditions, they are a personal study for self-knowledge requiring many years of work to execute as intended.

This is the first public presentation by the New York Gurdjieff Foundation in more than 55 years—a rare opportunity to witness the beauty of Gurdjieff’s exercises as a search for conscious movement.
