We are a tribe meeting in an old Phoenician island. We use the body as weapon to build a material that has no shape but the shape of the performers themselves and the trade between them. We will document this. It won’t be real but it won’t be fake, like free ninjas running across olive trees and techno music. We move leaning toward the vandalism of Western movies and the cuteness of youtube cats videos.”

We will create a frame of work that aims to bring the body to an ultimate place of presence and readiness. We will train physically in order to develop a common movement vocabulary. Our goal is to create primarily from the body intelligence.
The work will find its’ base in “the making” of itself. We will track the things that thrill and touch us, practice trust and bravery, raise up the physical and dramaturgical potential of the material and of each performer. We play the game and take the risk to loose. We will present an excerpt of the documented material combined with choreographic research in a performative format.
Our creative camp will be strenghtend by artists from different backgrounds and countries who are willing to play the game of creators and collaborators and who share our deep inner desires and interests in the work of video dance.
