A RESIDENTIAL INTENSIVE CONTACT + IMPROVISATION WORKSHOP
We invite you to develop and nourish your dance in a full 5 days long Residential Intensive Workshop in the countryside location of FARAGOUS, close to Camarés, France. A beautiful place situated between red earth fields and mountains.

This CONTACT + IMPROVISATION workshop proposes a time for the investigation of movement in the intimacy of a studio, as well in the wildness of the environment, outdoors. A proposal to deepen your dance and your CI experience as you are confronted to the visual, sound, perceptual and sensorial impressions and to observe your ability to remain open for the richness of internal and external drives. The integration of both experiences will support you accessing a fully embodied dance, will strengthen your improvisational skills, your solo dance and will open multiple possibilities for your physical communication with others.
The Ws will be taught in English, French and Spanish, depending on the need of the participants.
Some of the questions we bring this year are:
What I observe in the bidirectional movement: inside/out the body? Can we become boundaries less?
How to develop the reading ability of my attention in order to gain awareness of the choices I made and the possibilities they generate?
How to allow the movement to happen, without isolation, as I work with the multiplicity of senses: the inner dialogues that occur between what I watch, hear, perceive, feel, think, imagine and the changes of my relation to them?
What exists before the movement happens? How to offer ourselves the possibility to not know what is next? How to find “comfort” in the territory of the unknown?
What exists before we relate through touch? What stays?
Arrival: from 17h on August 31st.
Departure: after breakfast on September 6th.
Sleeping on a bed and all vegetarian meals and are included in the Workshop fee.
