Upcoming project In MAY: 2023
Geeli Mitti Movement Retreat is a two-week long project which brings 4 teachers from movement practice disciplines as well as sustainable living practice. We connect with nature, we learn, explore and experiment through this laboratory, inventing various methods from movement arts disciplines.
Participants will be involved in regular movement practice for two weeks. We will explore various methods while working with movement techniques, improvisation, partnering skills, composition, and performance practice with inspiration from martial arts and yoga. Each teacher is specialized in their own creative practice which you find in their teaching description.
Artists will be involved in creation process, learning some adaptive skills, re-establishing relationship between nature and movement. Learning new skills from each other. Inventing new roles as an artist where performer, choreographer and researcher will all become one. This may also create opportunities of future collaborative projects between artists and countries.

Breaking Points –
This movement practice offers a dancer/mover to critically develop a skill-set and body intelligence by actively deconstructing the current movement vocabulary, in order to create a risk-based space for exploration. Primarily the module deals in transformation of movement, by enhancing one’s relationship with the floor and the space in building up deep dance vocabulary.

Collective Effervescence –
A performance and choreographic workshop exploring how we can embody ‘collective thought and action’ in our dancing body. We will test out ideas around creating & performing collectively, as well as address our individual artistic voice and how this might interact, be received, dissolved & supported by the notion of group. We will explore performance games and research improvisational scores with rules to create choreographic action that excites us and expands our creative potential.
