The ultimate truth - codex of a good life

The fifth part of concert series by PLAY Plattform "Everywhere is heaven" is focussed on the virtue of discipline as it is a necessary character trait when one is pursuing courage, justice, reverence and truth in their lives. Thinking further, one has to develop the self-discipline to achieve the goal of a good life.

Program of the event embraces martial art performances (kata, kumite, workshop), installation based on the art of calligraphy and contemporary experimental music concert. The selection of cultural disciplines is not accidental, as all of them require consequent self-improvement, hard training and discipline. To meet at "the place of that Way" (in Japanese  dōjō) we invite our audience to the Ichigeki Academy - a homeland of the ultimate truth.

The event is supported by Ichigeki Academy, Kulturamt Frankfurt, Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst and Musikfonds.

* Kyokushin workshop participants should bring active-wear. Registration not necessary.

Supported by the Kulturamt Frankfurt, the HMWK (Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst) and the Musikfonds.
