About this event

Let's celebrate the Spring equinox, and take advantage of this season to liberate and find new ways of self-expression.

Through a 2-hours movement and dance session, you explore, try and enjoy the company and expression of your body. The sharing is based on indigenous West African practices (especially Akan, Yoruba, Madinka, Wara cultures ).

This first session particularly focuses on flow, fluidity and connection to the floor.

The session is built in a way to welcome everyone, with their abilities. It's not a dance class, it's a sharing space, in a safe and group-friendly environment.

- Movements and technics will come through organic processes based on empiricism – a fundamental element in African philosophy.

- Come with an open mind, heart and spirit.

- No choreography will be taught.

- We dance and move barefoot (or with socks if needed).

- We don't use any mirrors.

Come as you are or, and wish to be! (Make-up and costumes are welcomed).

About the organiser

When The Drums Call - a multidisciplinary project based on research in anthropology and dance.

Apart from the theoretical research, When the Drums Call offers movement and dance sessions.

They provide with holistic understanding and practices with roots in indigenous African philosophies. One of them is empiricism, or "learning by doing".
