“Body, Identity, Society” is a full time program you can attend for either 3, 6 or 9 months. It was designed for you, if you want to prepare, nourish or develop a professional career on the intersection of creation, connection, and community:
– make live art (dance, perform, choreograph, find your authentic artistic language, choreographic vocabulary, personal aesthetic…) ;
– create experiences (immersive rituals, multi-sensory ceremonies, interactive dispositives…) ;
– hold spaces (design “rooms”, develop your own method, write your creative or healing exercises, create your authentic practice…) ;
​- build communities (around events, workshops, performances, multi-sensory experiences, rituals, ceremonies, collaborations, festivities…).​​

​The educational path is built on three modules (“Body”, “Identity”, “Society”), each 3 months long, and articulated around different approaches (Theory, Practice, Dance Technique, Martial Art, Research, Creation Project, Wellbeing, Community…). In form of thematic workshops, creations, studio times, lectures, community activities, ceremonies, celebrations, performances, conversations, presentations, well-being times, research labs, dancing jams, public space interventions, and many more, students will be guided by a beautifully international and cross-cultural team, composed of artists, authors, makers, creators, curators, choreographers, musicians, DJs, scholars, healers, witches, and cultural activists.
