A Contact Improv Community Exchange
1-13 August, Barcelona
“Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.” ~ Starhawk
Whether locked down in the big city, separated from loved ones, or deprived of intimacy and loving touch, many people have had challenging experiences, the earth has taken a moment’s respite, and these strange times have given pause for thought.
The Remedy is an un-conference style event of Embodied Creativity, Improvisation, Dance and CI. It has two different parts. The first, a 3-day silent retreat focussing on the self and providing time for introspection. The second an exchange revolving around community – the collaborative exploration of embodied creativity and the building of relations. We offer a simple daily structure for all participants to co-create, improvise, organise, play and dance to our hearts desire.
This Remedy is an exchange between dancers and movers well rooted in the above mentioned fields, who are interested in community, and wish to share in deep creative research. It is not a place for curious souls with little experience.
What remedy would you like to offer to support our individual and collective evolution in these worrying times?

Taller de creación
Toda creación escénica va ligada al deseo de compartir. Compartir una sensación, una idea, una visión que nos parece importante, esencial e incluso reveladora…
Trabajaremos sobre aspectos tácticos y técnicos de la improvisación, creando códigos de intercambio claros y estimulantes con el otro, para termira construiendo pequeñas escenas improvisadas que recrearemos en espacios singulares de la naturaleza.
Exploring the Relational Body
and sharing creative practices
We are sprouting a multidiciplinary arts and cultural centre to disseminate artistic practices and research with the Relational Body as a central focus.
The centre is managed by the Vidalia intentional community and integral housing coop.
It is located in the Cultural heritage site of the old Textile mill and company town Cal Vidal in the Berguedà district, an hour from Barcelona.
