'Vermeer's View of Delft and His Vision of Reality' in: Artibus et Historiae 6 (1982) pp. 9-35. This article was written in collaboration with Dr. Arthur K. Wheelock Jr, curator of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.and has been widely cited.

'Perspective Views ' in: Print Quarterly (June 1985) pp. 86-104. Subsequently this article has appeared in a Japanse translation at Kobe Museum, Japan). My study was originally published in two parts in a Dutch magazine on book history, 'De optica, een leerzaam kijkvermaak' and 'Opticaprenten, uitgevers, graveurs, tekenaars' both in: De Boekenwereld part 1 (January 1985) pp. 2-12 and part 2 (March 1985) pp. 4-12.

This book also appeared simultaneously in a Dutch version: 'Pelgrimstocht door het leven; Reizen in de voetsporen van Vincent van Gogh ', Amsterdam, 1990.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a Life ( an unpublished book manuscript ) based on several major biographies and the full text book set of Mozart's Collected Letters (published in German). Historical image material from the archives and museums of Salzburg and Vienna has been added. Note: This manuscript awaits a publisher (possibly a book or CD-rom or DVD-publisher). One of the promising items is an extremely large and detailed 18th Century figurative city plan of Vienna, from the collection of the Austrian National Library (Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek). A full size copy of this print is in the archive of the author. Compare the Birds' Eye Flight of Delft! Possibilities for a succesful DVD or CDrom and creating an interactive Vienna & Mozart world are truly exciting.

BBC television: The madness of Vermeer - Secret lives of the artists. Interviewer Andrew Graham -Dixon. Now on Youtube. At the exact time of 35 minutes. 39 seconds the interviewer Andrew Graham-Dixon parks the bike and enters my home.

Thanks to Andrew's quality of asking the right questions at the right moment. Beforehand I had to clean up my desk, though.

    Wiki: Biodanza

    Biodanza (neologism from the Greek bio (life) and the Italian danza (dance), literally the dance of life ) is a system of self-development that uses music, movement and positive feelings to deepen self-awareness. It seeks to promote the ability to make a holistic link to oneself and one's emotions and to express them. Biodanza also claims to allow one to deepen the bonds with others and nature and to express those feelings congenially. http://altairedstates.co.uk/

    Biodanza claims to be a "human integration system of organic renewal, of affective re-education, and of relearning of Life's original functions. Its application consists in leading vivencias through music, singing, movements and group encounter situations". Toro, Rolando (2008). Biodanza. Editorial Cuarto Propio, Santiago, Chile. ISBN 978-956-260-433-8. http://biodanza.org/

    It is a method which aims the development of human capacities, including the feeling of happiness, communication skills and improving of relationships. http://www.biodanza.co.za/

    Biodanza was created in the 1960s by the Chilean Anthropology and Psychology Rolando Toro, http://www.biodanzabh.com.br/ the Biodanza system is now found in 54 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, Venezuela, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, South Africa United States, Ireland and Russia. http://biodanza.org/index.php?option=com_weblinks&view=categories&Itemid=88&lang=en

    Biodanza has been featured on CNN Chile. CNN Chile 19 Feb 2010 on BBC TV Making Slough Happy: a four-part series on Positive Psychology featuring Biodanza as one of the Happiness interventions: Episode 2, Tuesday 22 November 2005, BBC2 and national newspapers in the UK, and in lifestyle magazines in the UK Dance the heart-ache away, Cosmopolitan 1997; Geoff Dalglish, Grab a Partner, Mens Health December 2000; Stress Busters 10, FHM, April 2004. -quoted at http://altairedstates.co.uk/ and South Africa. O the Oprah magazine South Africa, January 2005 -quoted at http://altairedstates.co.uk/

    The UK Daily Telegraph describes Biodanza as "a series of exercises and moves that aim to promote self-esteem, the joy of life and the expression of emotions. Lots of bounding around and hugs".



    Gabrielle Roth - Alchetron, The Free Social Encyclopedia

    Gabrielle Roth

    Gabrielle Roth (February 4, 1941 – October 22, 2012) was an American dancer and musician in the world music and trance dance genres, with a special interest in shamanism. She created the 5Rhythms approach to movement in the late 1970s; there are now hundreds of 5Rhythms teachers worldwide who use her approach in their work.

    Roth worked at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. She also founded an experimental theatre company in New York, and wrote three books, created over twenty albums of trance dance music with her band The Mirrors, and directed or has been the subject of ten videos.

    Gabrielle roth the mirrors trance Early life

    Born in San Francisco, Roth was originally inspired to dance, aged seven, by seeing a ballerina through the window of a dance school, deciding that was her vocation. She found a book that showed the ballet positions and started to practice in her bedroom, eventually coming to have ballet lessons. She attended Roman Catholic schools and listened to the music of the local fundamentalist church.

    Roth described being inspired by the dance of Spanish gypsy La Chunga and by seeing the Nigerian National Ballet. She trained in traditional dance methods, suffering from anorexia during her teenage years. Roth paid for college education by teaching movement in rehabilitation centres. Following college she lived and worked in Europe for three years, during the mid 1960s. During this time she visited the concentration camps memorials in Germany that she had studied during college.

    She injured her knee in a skiing accident in Germany and later again in an African dance class. At 26, she was told that she needed surgery and wouldn't dance again and resigned herself to the prognosis. She entered a depression and later retreated to Big Sur in California, joining a group at the Esalen Institute. She became a masseuse there. She found that her body healed itself through dance, despite what the doctors had said. Gestalt psychiatrist Fritz Perls asked her to teach dance at the Esalen Institute and she set out to find a structure for dance as a transformative process. Out of her work at Esalen she designed the 'Wave' of the 5Rhythms approach, Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness.


    Roth's book, Sweat Your Prayers. begins with an autobiographical prologue, "God, Sex, & My Body", in which she writes of the contradictions in her personality that led her to dance. She comments, "I loved to work out my body but I hated the mirrors". She notes that she was taught by Catholic nuns "with eyes trained to scan for sin" and that her first dance teacher was "an old woman with frizzy dyed red hair, a funny accent, and a long thin stick" who would beat her whenever she made a mistake, initiating in Roth a severe inferiority complex. In college, she became pregnant. She found her lover insensitive to the news and had an abortion three days later.

    Roth writes that she felt the importance of privacy to her kind of dance while teaching at Esalen in a room "lined with picture windows". Passers by would stare in during sessions. Roth comments, "this was tragic, as the majority of my students were paralytically self-conscious when it came to moving their bodies." She noticed that her students had difficulty breathing. Her book Sweat Your Prayers ends with her vision of spreading dance across the world, the power of movement "leading us back into the garden [of Eden], back to the earth, whole and healed, spirit and flesh reunited".


    Roth was a faculty member at The Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health (Stockbridge, Massachusetts) and has taught at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies (Rhinebeck, New York). She trained for three years with Oscar Ichazo, founder of the Arica School and set up her own experimental theatre company in New York.

    The Moving Center teaches her work through her school in New York; it has certified over 400 5Rhythms teachers worldwide. She teaches experimental theatre in New York based on her 5Rhythms. Roth was music director of the theatre company The Mirrors and has been a member of the Actors Studio. Roth directed theatre productions of Savage Love. by Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin, at The Culture Project (Mercer Street, New York City).

    Roth wrote three books: Sweat Your Prayers: Movement as Spiritual Practice. Maps to Ecstasy: Teachings of an Urban Shaman. and Connections: The 5 Threads of Intuitive Wisdom. She founded The Moving Center School in 1977 in New York.

    With the Mirrors

    Roth performed and recorded as Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors and produced over 20 albums.

    YogaChicago describes Jhoom as "pure energy and bliss. Intense rhythms". Hot Indie News describes Still Chillin' as "without question yoga music" that "lends to an ambient, trance-like, meditative state". Awareness Magazine writes that the music pulses "creating a rhythmic aura that transports the listener", in a way that is perfect for yoga. Michael Riversong writes of "Silver Desert Cafe" on Tongues that "I always dance when it comes up".

    Roth and the Mirrors provided music for Michelle Mahrer's film, Dances of Ecstasy. in which Roth has an acting credit, appearing as herself. The New York Times review noted that "Whirling Dervishes from Turkey, Orisha Priestesses from Nigeria and Brazil, shaman healers from the Kalahari and dancers in a Gabrielle Roth workshop in New York, pulse to the same beat".


    The 5Rhythms movement system, founded by Roth in the late 1970s, focuses on five body rhythms: flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness and is "a way to become conscious through dance". The movement has spread worldwide with 245 registered teachers.

    The 5Rhythms have been the subject of at least one Ph.D thesis, and some academic publications. The Huffington Post described Roth as "an incredibly influential teacher of meditative dance".

    Charlotte Macleod, writing in the London Evening Standard. describes dancing Roth's 5Rhythms as a kind of antidote to life in a large city, and how she was attracted to a dance class by a video of Thom Yorke. The class leaves her "mentally and physically refreshed, and oddly connected to the other dancers." The dance was "a kind of moving meditation" for her.

    Christine Ottery, writing in The Guardian. states that "ecstatic dancing has an image problem" and "encompasses everything from large global movements such as 5 Rhythms and Biodanza to local drum'n'dance meet-ups". She suggests that readers may "find 5 Rhythms a good place to start", and does so herself: "Nervously, I stretch and warm my muscles. As the rhythms take off, I shake off my shyness." She dances in different ways, alone or with partners. "My body is expressing itself - it's utter abandonment and a complete high."

    In 2007, Roth founded the non-profit 5Rhythms Reach Out which offered classes in 5Rhythms to various groups, including those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, other dementias, and cancer.

    Personal life

    Roth's son is Jonathan Horan, honored by her to lead the 5Rhythms forward into future generations around the world

    Roth was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in 2009 and died on October 22, 2012, aged 71.
