Place
The essence of silence in a middle of nowhere

Wooden chalet, surrounded by mountains and autumn forest.
There are 2 halls for dancing, with wooden and linoleum floor,
rooms for 2-4 people, dorms for 8, a dining room
and a chillout for snacks and relaxation
Everyone is a message
...
This idea directed the course of events at the first festival and was firmly rooted in the basis of the second one. As we enter our 5 th year and lovingly craft the upcoming festival, we continue to expand the very same philosophy.

In silence, unable to verbally construct and project our usual self-image onto the social fabric of the festival group, we surrender to the unity of contact dance, allowing ourselves to dissolve in it and acquire a new identity. We observed that by limiting one mean of expression and giving full rights to the body to communicate, we become more attuned with our intuition, heighten our awareness and deepen our sensory perception.

As a consequence, we allow the world, and ourselves in it, to simply be and things to happen. Without really expecting this, we think we tapped into spiritually transformative potential of contact improvisation. Needless to say, we cannot wait to dive into the silent depths of contact dancing with everyone who will choose to be present at the festival this year.
