Dear dancers and explorers in the beautiful community of Bali!
We’re excited to invite you to the first Touch&Play Festival in Bali!
The initial spark of this inspiring project took place in Berlin back in 2010 when we started to rethink the dance, expanding the range of Contact Improvisation beyond the realms of the core practice of physical exploration and artistic expression. We invited other disciplines to explore and integrate the fields of Consent and boundary work, Tantra, Conscious Sexuality, BDSM and other art and healing practices. Over the years we were collecting material for creating safer spaces making a broader research possible, for digging deeper, queering the dance, questioning and exploring diverse forms of relationship, playing more wildly and yet with more awareness.
The vision is to integrate diverse aspects of humanness and alternative ways of relating, offering the community a container where they can learn about themselves, heal and enjoy in an environment with less judgements, framed and guided by experienced facilitators from various backgrounds.
Touch&Play wants to hold space for reconnecting, redefining, discussing and exploring, healing and coming back to the playful side of the human being and finally bringing all of this back into the practice of the dance.
To make this journey as rich and safe as possible, we will start the festival with ensuring a common ground through a full day of consent work and Contact Improvisation technique. Once we feel more grounded and connected we invite you to dive deeper and into more experimental forms of connection. Throughout the week we will offer participants material and experiences that help cultivate a more conscious self, and build more authentic and compassionate relations.
To make this first Touch&Play event in Bali a truly intimate and deep experience, we limited the number of participants to 40 explorers, so better reserve your spot soon! 😉
Excited for growing and playing with you!
