Contemporary meets Martial Arts
Inspired by the thousands-of-years old South Indian martial art Kalaripayattu, we work at the intersection between dance and combat. Both art forms deal with the body, consciousness and presence in different ways. The holistic concept of this workshop supports the participants to dive into new physical and mental territory and offers space to explore their own limits and to expand their own repertoire of movements.
