Gurdijeff's Movements are dances and physical exercises as collected, choreographed and developed by G.I. Gurdjieff born 1866 in Alexandropol, Armenia and died 1949 in Paris. The Movements and music both form an important part of his teaching, in which one studies the laws of the universe mainly by means of self-observation. Wim van Dullemen has been accompanying Movements classes for over forty years, playing, practicing, researching and teaching. Movements dancer Christiane Macketanz participates in this process. Amir Kaufmann's film allows a view into van Dullemen's long experience of the magical touch of sound, combined with these exact and powerful Movements.

Gurdjieffs Movements sind von G.I. Gurdjieff gesammelte, choreografierte und entwickelte Tänze und Körperübungen. Gurdjieff wurde 1866 in Alexandropol, Armenien, geboren und starb 1949 in Paris. Die Movements und Musik bilden einen wichtigen Teil seiner Lehre, in der man die Gesetze des Universums hauptsächlich mittels eigener Beobachtung studiert. Wim van Dullemen begleitet seit mehr als vierzig Jahren die Unterrichtsklassen für Movements mit Musik, Übungen, Recherche und Unterricht. Movements-Tänzerin Christiane Macketanz nimmt an diesem Prozess teil. Amir Kaufmanns Film erlaubt einen Blick auf van Dullemens langjährige Erfahrung in der magischen Berührung des Klangs, kombiniert mit exakten und dynamischen Bewegungen.
