Forest Lighthouse


This lab is for performing artists who want to explore new tools and creative possibilities on stage with basic elements of rhythm and percussion in movement. Group experimentation sessions, design and experimentation of individual and collective scenes.

Body percussion in traditional Mexican dance has a ritual origin, connecting the performer to the earth and enabling him or her to get in touch with his or her own needs and abilities.
This generates close communication between the general body codes of a community and the individual. Returning to this principle, in this language and in the language of the group, opens up expressive possibilities that can provide us with scenic elements for professional work.

Intensive of 5 sessions of 3 hours each, for a total of 15 hours.
