Where: Reggio Calabria, Italy

When: 12.10.2020 – 17.10.2020

Are you from a dance or circus background?

Do you have the desire to go further in your practice and explore within these disciplines?

CDL can offer you a unique environment to make it happen!

Over 6 days, participants will dive into physical-movement research with artists from both fields, dance and circus. According to their program, the first 4 days will work on pure technique and exploration.

The last two days will move to the creative process with the intent to blend AcroFloorwork, Contemporary Dance and Partner Acrobatic. CDL will guide you through tasks to create a performance, using the material learned and explored during the week.

Be aware!

The program isn’t a retreat but a research and unconventional performance program. In the frame of the venue, there will nature and excursions planned, specially our sea is special! But CDL want you to draw your attention and focus on the daily physical practice. A commitment and desire to learn from our program is essential! A minimum of 1 year experience in one of the practices in which we will work is required.

The main goal is to create a safe environment and a committed space where each participant can grow and improve individually as well as a community.


The level is intermediate/advanced
For this reason the participants must have 1 year of experience in one of the field (dance and/or acro)
