FREE BODIES

THE PROGRAM

The program typically spans from October to May of the following year.

During the initial five months, our emphasis is on the creative aspect. Participants are immersed in creative processes, engaging in the creation of pieces and participating in choreographic workshops. This immersive experience allows them to explore a diverse range of methods and practices that will contribute to their long-term artistic development.

The final three months are dedicated to gaining valuable stage experience through performances in theaters and festivals. We are excited to offer various formats, including performances in traditional theaters, on the streets, and in unconventional spaces, ensuring that participants develop the skills needed to adapt to any performance situation.

In addition, we facilitate collaborations with professionals from various backgrounds, such as video-makers, photographers, and entrepreneurs in the dance industry. This ensures that participants have the opportunity to explore multiple facets of the dance industry and broaden their understanding of the field.
