Kaizen Bakou, is one of the Inner Kaizen Humanology’s branch which, through dance rituals, stillness and movements, takes you to perceive that you are enough. To accept and respect the differences among us. To be able to act with the intention to free yourself and any being around you. To assume your responsibilities. To perceive and integrate what means to serve instead of work. To engineering yourself by creating the right condition within you to get to know what kind of seed you are. Thats the only way which you can start to cultivate yourself properly. Preparing yourself to accept any transformation.

The dancing, gesturing body externalises Kwenda Lima’s guiding principle: rhythm’s ritualistic dimension, drawn out through live drummers or by combining recorded percussion with his own drums. The polyrhyth- mic contrasts of timbres and timelines reveals Kaizen Bakou’s “dependence” on not merely rhythm, but polyrhythm. Divided into groups that simultaneously pursue different movements and/ or contrapuntal chants to work with each other, the workshop becomes a pulsating, percussive, polyrhythmic body. Through ‘the pleasurable dimension’ of physical exhilaration, it bursts through the ‘straitjacket’ of Western rhythm.
"Your freedom begins when you become grateful enough to transform your fears."
