l´mono ( http://l-mono.org ), an independent urban arts/cultural center run by a small collective. We have a beautiful dance studio, a music and a couple more studios, a exibition/concert hall, kitchen… situated in a centrical old industrial building, which due to urban planning is destinated to disappear in the not too faraway future; the dance studio is run by olaf kehler, who studied at the sndo,amsterdam; ongoin classes monday&wendsday, 20.00-23.00; other classes tba, usually contact on the last wensday of the month; main investigating focus is multidisziplinary improvisation; sometimes we have dance pieces performed, but mainly we have a lot of concerts, a lot of international and local experimental bands; with these musicians we often have a 15 min dance/music/projections improv-set before their shows; we invite all travelling artists dancers performers to pass by, maybe share work, maybe play together..
and bilbao and its surroundings are sure worth a visit : friendly and very special people, it´s famous transformation from industrial to ´cultural´city ("guggenheim-effect"),beautiful beaches with cool waves 25 min away, mountains all around…sounds like a tourist guide..haha..but it´s true..
