Part Off on 23rd, 28th, 29th and 30th to arrive and end gradually, with open and free activities in natural areas. Part In, from 24th to 27th with energetic practices, intensive workshops, and jams everyday. Thus, we provide two styles of living and sharing the Contact Improvisation, a free and self-managed and another one more formal and structured to accommodate all tastes, budgets and preferences.

De esta manera albergamos dos estilos de convivir y compartir el Contact Improvisación, una más libre y autogestionada y otra más formal y estructurada, para albergar todo tipo de gustos, bolsillos, y preferencias.

MANDALA CREW

Boom fest. Mandala light
Healers with artistic skills and dancers with caring gifts, flow like a flock of birds or a shoal of bright beings, spreading beauty, dance, music, human mandalas, cosmic showers and massages to whoever they cross with…
They inspire a blossoming feeling, a peaceful invitation for a sharing and caring realm, where everyone is welcome to participate.
The crew has a very clear healing action in an artistic and choreographic structure, so it’s much beyond performance. It is a ‘prayerformance’… a performance with a prayer intention. A ritual of energetic care, dance sharing, moving awareness…
We’ve dreamed it as a deep bliss of beauty, love and healing. Every day, any hour…
by Pedro Paz
