Come and join the wild lab Workshop. Pyrenees. August 20-28th, 2018
The Moonwalk Wild Lab workshop
Dance workshop and hiking in wild nature.
This workshop is inspired by the collective adventure Moonwalk (itinerant artistic laboratory in nature during one moon cycle) and proposes a unique experience of one-week dancing, walking and living in wild nature.
Where: Ariège, Pyrenees
When: From August 20-28th, 2018
Deadline for applications: 18/08/2018
By calling in wild forces and ancient memories in our bodies we will explore the meeting of body and landscape, how nature influences the group work, how to create together a dialogue with the environment and how to find an organic creative process.
We will propose different exercises, explorations, we will create our own rituals and we will improvise in the magnificent Pyrenees mountains in south France.
We will bring everything that we need for the time with us. We pack in our food and share such collective tasks as food preparation, clean-up and camp set-up. We practice low impact camping, paying attention to our physical relationship to the world around us.
Fell free to contact us with any questions.
