Southern Portugal well-known coast brings together all the elements for a delightful dance immersion, where you will be able to enjoy the breath-taking beaches and Lagos historical beauty.
Some parts of the Workshop will be happening outside, on the surrounding rock formations and beaches. One of the propositions will be a work on duo composition to create video-recordings. This will enable each participant to come back with some audiovisual material in this stunning environment, bringing together natural beauty and the evolution of one’s creative process in the dance.

We support spontaneous improvisation performances and provide performing spaces for the compositions that are being created during the workshop.
