P.O.R.C.H. is a sustained, immersive program, dedicated to body-based art-making. It happens in three modules, in June, July, and August. But it is no ordinary training program — it is an intense, artistic, somatic, social, and performative incitement — a catalyst for transforming lives, an engine for offering new perspectives, a gazing-ball for imagining new possibilities.

The P.O.R.C.H. Synthesis Module gathers knowledgeable practitioners and choreographers to offer their perspective on movement and on the role, that performance and choreography plays in the here and now.

This module is a focused place for research, both for art-making and for communal living. There is space given to widen, soften, refine one’s dance; there is room for partying; there is room for making good use of one another as witnesses, audience, playmates; there is space in the studio, in the garden, in the forest, in the water…

Participants in the P.O.R.C.H. Synthesis Module meet daily, for an extended time, within the swirl of the active Ponderosa atmosphere. The module adapts to Ponderosa’s international public audience and relies on the available activities to create a collaborative and conceptual stage. Participants must be able to work within this varied and layered set of conditions and be able to spare or focus their energy. Simply put, the priority is the act of performance, combined with the focus of choreographic intent.
