By displacing trance and techno dance from the club environment into the dance studio, the HIGHER workshop offers the opportunity to experience and analyse dance in a hybrid formula between recreational and technical. The participants are guided with very specific focus into simple yet accurate activities such as dancing on the beat, dancing alone, and dancing with others attempting to reach a state of flow.


EROCA NICOLS (TO) — Aggressive snuggling: from politics of touch to the poetics of touch

“Eroca is stellar. This workshop was so much more than I imagined it would be.” (Anonymous)

I have recently I started studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and I see many parallels to contact improvisation (CI). Like CI, in BJJ it is absolutely necessary to commit all my attention to the task at hand because of real physical risk. One of the aspects I love about BJJ and where I see a very real difference from CI, is the incredible clarity of boundaries.
