Do you know that feeling when a certain location moves you?
an open space between the trees
the ruins of an abbey
a cold spring wakes up the body.

Deadline for application: 20 August 2015
Where: CREATERRE, La Pinalie, France (Dordogne)
When: 24 August, 6pm – 30 August, 11am
In this full week workshop we explore dance in relation to the surroundings.
A continuous journey of performances in which our bodies explore inner and outer landscapes.
We dance in the rustic studio, in forest and fields, historical ruins and water. The dance will be supported by sessions of bodywork, writing, voice explorations and meditation. And of course the silent green environment of Createrre.
You have the opportunity to work with the artistic knowledge of two experienced performers within the field of improvised dancing. Both intrigued by the body in a specific environment and the body itself as a place, a landscape. They each work with their own perspective on this subject.
* Johnny Schoofs *
Can we move and be inspired by the poetic power of space and architecture within and outside our own body?
Developing presence in space, in silence and dynamics.
The architecture of the spacious body within the architecture of its environment.
* Kristien Sonnevijlle *
The human body as material. No more, less or different than the earth it moves on. The landscape as a carefully sculpted composition to move through and be present in.
Can body be as present as tree?
