Collective Dope


Exploration of continuous and infinite moving. How to travel through different movement qualities from standing upper level all the way gradually to the floor within one trip. Waving, bouncing and floating into a very concentrated and relaxed state of mind. Without stopping after each exercise and re-entering for a next one, we try to continuously stay in physical exploring mode with our body and understand how this affects the movement itself. We will work on set movement patterns inspired by house dance, footwork, acrobatic elements and floor technique combining them with improvisational qualities of isolation, liquidity, release and your own personal style and flow.


The soft way to start and finish the day together.
In the morning we are waking up the body with fluid waves and imagination. Preparing the body and mind for all possible places that we might encounter during the day.
In the evening we are cooling down ‘the instruments’ that we have filled up with new information and knowledge throughout the workshops. Stretching, massaging and relaxing with different kinds of approaches as well as sharing some highlights of the day to the fellow dancers.
