AUGUST 14 – 18: INSTINCT Intensive – Iris van Peppen
The INSTINCT intensive is an annual summer intensive with a focus on revealing instinctual movements through research in somatic principles. Rather then focussing on ideas or composition, the composition will unfold through the embodiment of the research where all our senses come into play. With a focus this year on the puls this intensive this year is for both dance and music performers.

For over 20 years Iris van Peppen has been working as a dance artist in the field of contemporary dance and instant composition. Due to her hearing disability as a young child Iris developed a deep kinesthetic awareness. 
 Iris van Peppen makes sensorial work using minimal choices in sound, movement and space. Besides her own organisation Contemporary Dance Platform Iris founded her Company Iris van Peppen/Co.

AUGUST 21 – 25: Ideokinesis & Contact Improvisation – Tim O’Donnell 
An intensive on experiential anatomy through Ideokinesis, Contact Improvisation and composition.

Tim O’Donnell is a New York based dance artist who has been studying, teaching, and performing in both the United States and Europe. His exploration in dance and movement is strongly rooted in a deep physical listening and a sense of adventure. His classes range from the gentle and subtle to the acrobatic and fluidly athletic. He holds an MFA in Dance and has maintained a private practice in therapeutic bodywork and somatic movement since 1991. Currently he is on faculty at Movement Research and Arizona State University.
