Project Description

SEMA

Animation

Director  Amin Palangi

Sema is the mystical meditative dance of the Sufi Dervishes that bridges the cosmic and material worlds. During the sacred ceremony of the dance, the dervishes rotate in precise rhythm, the circular motion of which represents the earth revolving on its axis while orbiting the sun. In essence the dance imitates the universe because everything in the universe, from the atoms and electrons to the seasons and the human body, is designed around a revolving pattern. The ultimate purpose of the dance is to empty oneself from all distracting thoughts, and escaping the boundaries of the physical body.
