CACAO CEREMONY

Cacao ceremonies are a type of shamanic healing, combined with beautiful music, singing and chanting.  without the “out of body” effects, unlike some of the other shamanic experiences. The ceremony ends in dance, which allows the cacao to activate within the heart and body. Cacao ceremonies are rooted in helping to rebalance the energies within us, and restore good health.

BREATHWORK

forced breathing technique will help us enter another state of consciousness for self-study. it will be a little different from the classic holotropic breath because we will try to integrate the lived experience in motion.

ABOUT 2DAYS 2DANCE

ONE MORE FESTIVAL INSIDE FESTIVAL

2 days for integration in your body.

This is a space in the end of our program without classes and expectations. Where, for some reason, people from different parts of the planet gather to dance contact improvisation for 20 hourses.

This is nomadic festival, it was born in Russia about 6 years ago. And now it was more than 40 times in different cities.

ABOUT TEACHER

My expirence started with contemporary dance in France. Very quickly I was thinking about mixing a lot of arts together and I spend four years studying acrodance in circus schools in France ( Bordeaux and Toulouse). I was working in couple and this is how my path brought me to Contact Improvisation. Since then exploring acrobatic in contact and going deep in movement. I fall in love with all the aspects of contact improvisation.

CLASSES: "FIRE"

Acrobatic mouvement / acrocontact
In the movement searching for our deep flame we are going to woke up our acrobatic body. What is the fire of my body and how can I explore and explose my limits.

I've been dancing all my life since kindergarten. I tried pop dances, hip hop, modern jazz and contemporary dance. I always got bored, I didn't understand why I should dance someone's choreography. Until I met with contact improvisation. I fell in love right away, changed my whole life in order to practice it. And for more than 6 years this has been my main activity. Almost immediately I began to teach, because in the place where I moved there was no CI. In contact improvisation there is infinite layers of development that I'm definitely here for a long time.In addition to dance, I now study Osteopractice and work with people using hand sensitivity. Before that, I practiced massage, and I always dreamed of being an osteopath. Now this dream is being realized and I am very glad about it.

CLASSES: "EARTH"

On the Earth classes we will dance with a ground, our first and main partner. Many rollings around on the floor. The ground teach us to release unnecessary tension, to yield and trust Gravity. At the same time it is a support, an opportunity to stand and to fly.

In 2011, it dawned on me. I decided to devote all my time to contact improvisation.
I spent a lot of time in independent research, without teachers, collecting information bit by bit.
I spent one year crawling in the gym for 6 hours a day. Everything was interesting to me, I got acquainted with Somatics, Authentic Movement, Presence and Performance.


A significant event for me was the acquaintance with the "Ideokinesis" method.
Then were many important meetings with Katya Basalaeva, Mirva Makinen, Otto Akkinen, Bruno Kaverna and other well-known and not very well-known masters of their craft.

In 2015 I’ve started a project, Jam Festival "Two Days To Dance". People come from different parts of the country just to dance for 10 hours, two days of contact. Every time in a new city. Each festival attracts from 50 to 120 people. It has become a real magic and an experience of my life for 6 years. We held more than 40 events, now I have even lost count. 

 

Now I am interested in acrobatics, I am learning parkour little by little. At 25 I thought it was too late for me, now I'm 35 and I am learning to allow myself to do it.

Now, for me, the beauty of dance is not in complete movements, but in an honest, open search and attempts at this movement.

I have developed with Katya our own method of teaching contact improvisation, movement and bodywork. Once my friend and I came up with it and called it "Spherokinesis". In work as a tool we use ordinary inflatable balls. And it turned out to be an incredible tool for teaching the basics much faster. Apart from the basics, this provided interesting clues for advanced dancers as well. Perhaps this is what I would like to share in my classes, if the opportunity presents itself.

CLASSES: "AIR"

The air for me is about falling. The first class we will fall, and use the state of fall to develop our movement.

Another air for me is waves. And air waves are sound. Second grade we will continuously sound and crawl. I called this practice a "Crawling Grawling". But in some form it will be the same about falling, letting go.

Andrea Scheel . Mexican artist trained in contemporary dance in AREA, espai de movimento; (Barcelona, 2006 – 2008) and the dance conservatory of Sevilla (2009 – 2010). She starts her professional dancing with CAD- centro andaluz de danza (Sevilla, 2010 – 2011) with different choreographers such as Johan Inger, Isabel Vasquez}. Now in constant exploration with somatics, biomechanics and evolutionary movement on land and water. She has practiced Contact Improvisation since 2008, facilitating spaces for its practice since 2013.

She also started practicing aquatic therapies like Aguahara and Wasser Tanz while creating spaces for its sharing. Part of her mission is to create safe spaces for facilitating processes of inhabiting the body from a somatic approach, and contact improvisation from a creative, collective and performing view. She has been organizing the Contact and Flow festival , before Liquid Flow, since 5 years now. Her actual passion is drawing, painting, and handpoke tattooing.

CLASSES: "WATER"

Ground Fluid - contact improvisation through water and somatics. We have been nurtured for 9 months on our mothers’ womb, in the oceanic waves of uterine fluids. Our bodies contain encrypted memories of our ancestral origins that can be embodied and expressed when submerged in water and allowing movement to emerge.
Through somatic experiences of the 7 Basic Neurocellular patterns on earth and water, the different body systems can beautifully dance in an organic way, our inner waters in harmony. This ancestral origin we come from gets to travel through our inner fluids and embedded into our DNA, this means the fluids in our organs, our blood, the inner part of our cells, transmit a vibration of our past experiences as the waves of the ocean travel.
With help of somatization through imagery, embryological and anatomical understandings and touch, movement explorations and contact improvisation principles, a safe and playful space will be created to share tools for dancing and jam together on both the ocean, pool , in studio, and nature itself. Some previous movement practice and basic knowledge of the form is needed. To open oneself to the mystery of the unknown, the unconscious, the symbolic dimension of our ground fluid. A fluid which is our inner ground, sense of home and stability through implicit motion. Nowhere to go but to the next breath.
