Inspired by our origins 

In this workshop we evolve from big bang to human being. Different stages of our physical development provide us with different tools which we’ll explore as (contact) dancers.

As we get limbs, can we maintain our core strength? Walking upright is fantastic but how about flipping upside down for a change of perspective?

The trees, the sand, the birds will help us remember where we came from. They guide us, human doings, into human beings again. So we can simply enjoy the space - time - everything and everyone that passes through. 

me. It's easy.
