About this workshop
Do you like to play with your body? Do you like to play with different levels of intensities? Are you curious and like trying out different things? If you have answered yes to at least one of these questions, this workshop is for you!
I invite you to discover the world of conscious whipping where we will explore the relationships between you and the power of the whip, you and your partner, and the space''in-between'' where the magic happens. Let's take a closer look at how physical impact to the body can deepen our body awareness, and how breath, movement and sound can enhance bodily sensations as well as intensify energy flow.
For some, whipping is the ultimate symbol of power and control. For others, it is a tool to spice up the bedroom. Still for others, whipping is a deep, spiritual practice.
With grace and elegance we will learn how to manipulate and handle the whip, receive and give various degrees of impact and how to process its intensity. All will be conducted in a safe place, a luscious world where sensual magic rules.
This workshop is open to all genders, sexual preferences and skill levels and is equally suitable for those participating solo or with a partner.Reserve a seat

About this workshop
Claire Côté (performer with voodoohop) guides participants through various improvisational dance exercises to inspire new, creative movements and expand one’s awareness of spatial composition, partnering, physical sensations, and dynamics. The workshop arc brings one to a full cathartic release of body and mind through a body-mind-centering meditative introduction, followed by highly energetic sections, which encourage vocalization and expressive, gestural, spacious, rhythmic, flowing, and explosive movements. Be ready to sweat and feel inspired and free!Reserve a seat
About this workshopThe multidimensional pathways to and with joy in Contact Improvisation Dance are saturated with insight and learning which is why its depth to me, is endless. This workshop aims for two treasures: 1. to provide you with some dance tools that you feel great about to be able to further play with the form 2. to open up your curiosity and own inner scientist for the subtle pleasure that underlies every single move that you make that is ready for you to perceive and expand it We will physically understand softness inside and outside and explore the strength that stems from that. There will be some time to connect to our first outside dance partner: the floor. We will release and melt into, move with other dance partners and alone, roll, enjoy compression, go with and in counter directions, share weight and playtime and dance with the pull of gravity and outer space weightlessness! About CI and what you can expect in this Workshop: It is a free form, yet offers very concrete physical principles to play with. My approach to dancing as well as to teaching CI is to focus on the dance, the moving, not fixating an idea, a wish, a need of which you think has to be met (by you or others). The pleasures that can be found while dancing in Contact are as endless as the research itself. I find some of those pleasures have to do with: - The three dimensional weight sharing possibilities - Moving through and with a thicker substance than air - The beautiful side-effect of a deep tissue massage whilst not concentrating on it - Connecting to another living being in a non-verbal, non-sexual and very playful level of touch – which is sadly far too rare in our modern society - The incredible lifts coming out of nowhere, the flying, the falling - The releasing into the now and using it with more substance - The pure joy of moving and experiencing our bodies through that – which is one strong reason why we started to move as babies in the first place - Playing and finding possibilities, surprise, presence, and blending body-mind-soul About Anir Leben: I am a Berlin based dancer and teacher with a focus on improvisation, Contact Improvisation (CI) and music. I graduated in dance, improvisation and performance at TIP, bewegungsart Freiburg 2013 and enrichened my knowledge in music and dance as a guest-student for Rhythmik at the UDK Berlin. I feel like a happy researcher in the field of dance, improvisation and the movement of body, sound and thought. My Go To and own great teacher is the present moment and the play with it.

About this workshop
“Every profound spirit needs a mask: even more, around every profound spirit a mask is continually growing.” F. Nietzsche
We will start with a mirror, a sheet of paper and a pencil; next you are free to select your own choice of materials from a mishmash of recycled and found objects that have the chance to “be reborn” in a new life.
It’s up to you to find the natural item that you think fit your face and/or personality best, or the ones that hide your real being, in order to transform yourself into a new creature.
Re-born as androgynous, follow the insect’s metamorphosis, let’s go back to the primordial image, rituals and archetypes through the magic experimentation of building and wearing masks.http://ambrarosedorne.tumblr.com/workshops Reserve a seat

About this workshop
The idea of having access to many sexual partners through open relationships or indulging in open play spaces occasionally is attractive for many reasons. It easily comes with just as many challenges, however, and little cultural wisdom or obvious guidelines to figure them out. Like in most charged scenarios, clear communication helps a lot from getting things started to providing good after care. Unfortunately, there exists this idea that talk isn't sexy. In this 2h Workshop we will look at some of these challenges and introduce some techniques and ideas through easy going games and exercises to cultivate good communication practice, verbally and non-verbally. This playshop is clothes on and includes no scenarios of intimate touch. Join on your own or with any number of friends or partners.
