This year Unplugged Dance is growing into two extra branches! A total of 12 workshops throughout summer 2023 to choose from!
Where: Neochori, Lefkada, Greece
When: June 25th – August 20th & September 3rd-10th, 2023
A dance educational program in Lefkada Greece including original dance workshops with inspiring international educators and artists of contemporary dance and somatic practices. A living and practicing experience including dance workshops, accommodation and meals.
For this summer’s edition we took the time and carefully designed a truly unique program.
In the main Unplugged program we host every year new educators and artists from all over the world, through an open call process, in order to meet and highlight dance practices and methods that may exist around the world and approach dance as a practice of embodiment. We choose to emphasize on the importance of embodiment in dance education, research and choreography, in order to approach dance in a more open and inclusive way that can relate to self-determination, empowerment and expression. A dance -metaphorically and literally speaking- beyond the pursuit of a perfect form, that serves a liberating process of acceptance and joy.
This year Unplugged Dance is growing into two new more branches;
Revisited and Research
Unplugged Revisited is an imprint left by our meeting with the facilitators of the first Unplugged Dance program. With the intention of creating a space of educational, artistic research and exchange, that will give the opportunity for our individual trajectories to meet and our relationships to deepen, we created this branch where educators/artists from the previous Unplugged Dance programs, have a whole week in order to deepen or revisit their workshop.
Unplugged Research week is our new space to question and reflect, consisting of two research workshops, with two different artists. Our intention is to encourage artists and educators in the field of movement and dance to further explore, question and share their practices while being in a safe environment surrounded by individuals that are willing to participate in a research process.
What to expect:
Sensitive explorations through movement exercises under the guidance of experienced facilitators
Discovering original dance and somatic practices
Staying in a serene wooded location and having community activities in nature
Practicing on an openair, shaded platform of 95sm, with a breathtaking view.
Having two delicious vegetarian meals per day and a snack, plant-based, with fresh, local, organic products, cooked with love by the experienced team of φ | Foodpath.
Getting in touch with your creativity skills in a non-judgmental, safe space
Enjoying your free time on beautiful beaches with turquoise waters.
Getting in touch with practices such as improvisation, Butō dance, performance, authentic movement,
Body weather techniques, DaDÁ, Body Mind Centering, Somatic Art Practice, Losing Ground, Spirit Dance, and more
Being part of a community of people with similar interests and quests.
Being in a remote and peaceful place ideal for taking the time to observe, calm and unplug.
Every week is designed as a unique and complete program.
In the main program participants may attend for one or two weeks.
Classes will take place in an openair shaded dance platform, as well as in natural locations of the village.
All workshops will be taught in English.
All Unplugged Dance workshops are open to everyone who wants to meet, share, dance and self-explore through movement and creative process. The workshops can be both challenging for professional dancers that want to deepen in their practice as well as welcoming for non professionals.
