Words And Voices, Stations And Stages (Rijeci i glasovi, postaje i stupnjevi)

Dalibor Martinis

1990, 17:30 minutes, colour


The theme of the video is zikr (dhikr), a mystical dervish ritual of the repetition of words and cadences of God's names until a trance sets in which leads to higher "Stages of cognition" and "Stations of the soul". Scenes are pregnant with the energy of the authentic rituals carried out by dervishes, Gypsies from Skopje, who are submerged in a multitude of highly stylized pictures, indicating an apparently entirely different path towards spiritual satisfaction.
