11th May festival is back to Kyiv

Around 120 participants gather every year since 2009. And we hope to see as many this season.

It’s not modest to say though it’s a fact that Kyiv in May is just fantastic. It’s the best time of the year to explore 1400-year-old city.

What’s the plan?

  • 3 intensives on CI + 1 intensive on somatics.
  • 8 jams (1 in the morning and 7 in the evening).
  • 12 Classes by Ukrainian and international teachers.
  • Research labs facilitated by festival guests and participants.
  • Open city performances with festival participants.
  • Dance walking near river Dniper.
  • Experiments: drawing, sound and etc. (open to your ideas).

20 sec video to tease you 🙂

to come but can not cover 100% participation costs. We will send reports to all festival angels about how their
donation will be used.
