THE HUMAN BODY IN THE 21st CENTURY

How much courage do you have to step into the Unknown?
 
What would you become if pushed to the edge of the Imposible?
 
This is an invitation to be part of six extraordinary days, each one of them lasting longer than 24 hours.
We invite athletes, educators, practitioners, physiotherapists, scientists, artists and all kind of enthusiasts from different disciplines who have the courage to test and give space to new ideas on how we consider physicality in terms of practicality, creativity  and actual context. 

Some objects will be given to you, some you will create on your own. 
You will be introduced to new movement situations new “t0ys” to break your habitual way of thinking and reacting. 
You will be asked to be creative even if there is nothing to create. 
 
From nothing to everything, from none to endless variations.

We work with Irregularity, Pressure, Variety, Restriction and Difficulty.  
With Improvisation born out of Necessity.

We change the rules all the time.
 
We will challenge your speed, your memory, your ability to collaborate, to coordinate and to make decisions when all goes wrong.

 
Try. Try Again, Fail Again, Become Alive Again, Die Again, Be Born Again, Suffer Again, Get smashed Again.
But Smile always because you discover and explore.
Come study with us.
Come play with us.
