is to bring the CI out of the practice studio to an experimental contact with the natural environment and local community. The goal is to take the morning technic learnings to the guided site specific sessions, in a few afternoons at the beach, the farm house and the train station.
Why? Because we like explore the potential of affecting people and living beings with kindness and empathy through our dance.
Closest Airport is Faro by taxi it takes about 25 minutes and costs are 30-40€. There is also a train from Faro central station to Tavira (3-4€) and from there you would need to take a taxi, costing 8-10€. Exact location we will send you after registration.
