Nightly impressions of a Capoeira game and a Baay Fall manifestation. Both environments together form a timeless space in which everything seems to float.

In the circle of Capoeira the movements of the fight become as circular as earth itself. There is no up and down for the earth. The former fight for liberation is now a game with the other about a kind of self liberation.

In the circle of Baay Faal singular souls connect with the one an only soul. Each individual life path is embedded in the human community.

Everything has its own natural beginning as much as its own natural end.


Capoeira: martial art from Brazil
Baay Fall: Muslim Sufi brootherhood from Senegal
