^ the HeArtBell (heartbell) was coined by Tatjana Christelbauer in 2021 for a dance meditation series composed of bodily movement sequences, breathing exercises-ventilations compound with multilingual phonetical experiences, and language plays with a guide to ethical imagination through thought experiments, 

with the aim to introduce, improve,

disseminate, and further develop 

art-based practices for the prevention of violent behavior, mitigation of depression, social conflicts, and stress,

support local and international endeavors toward the improvement of living conditions and social relations and relationships, for a peaceful world and life within  


“The liberation of the earth, the liberation of women, the liberation of all humanity is the next step of freedom we need to work for, 
and it’s the next step of peace that we need to create.” 
Vandana Shiva
"What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another."
Mahatma Gandhi
“If words were adequate to describe fully what the dance can do, there would be no reason for all the mighty muscular effort, the discomfort, the sweat, and the splendors of that art.” 
José Arcadio Limón
"The hot breath of our turbulent times" should finally be expressed in Vienna in a revolution in the art of dance"
Gertrud Bodenwieser
