How can we facilitate new dialogue, inspire social and political transformations and reimagine our relationship to nature in response to climate breakdown?
A 3 week immersive residency set in the Kankon jungle of South Goa to explore the question of climate resilience through art collaborations, community and collective dialogue.

This site-responsive program is set in a unique and ecologically-sensitive tropical forest nestled between the Western Ghats of India and the Malabar Coast. It introduces residents to the local ecology and culture of the area, inviting responses to the environmental crisis faced in this local context. The program fosters close engagement and participation with local communities and aims to support them socially and economically through the presence of and exchange with resident artists.
Residents are welcome to work on individual pieces and encouraged to collaborate with peers on the residency program. The Tribe cultivates spaces that encourage personal and professional growth through free learning, creative experimentation and inspiration drawn from direct contact with the wild. The Project's intention is to rewild and explore ways to resolve the enduring conflict between (wo)men and nature.
The residency culminates in an interdisciplinary eco-arts festival celebrating all pieces created by residents in response to the climate crisis. Residents are asked to offer a workshop or talk during their time in the jungle, as well as create at least one piece of work for The Tribe Goa collection that will be included in the  festival at the end of the program.

PRACTICING BEINGS // André Soares
A sensorial journey // durational experience: awakening the affection of time and space within being

TRUST&TOUCH TECHNIQUES for multidimensional experiences

where: Dock11 Studio 3 and outside
when: 31 October and 1 November
from 10am to 3pm
to whom: all people interested in movement and performative practices, no need of professional level
registration by email to: practicingbeings@gmail.com
price/offer: from 30 to 80 € (if that is not possible please get in contact and we will find a way)

About:
Practicing Beings unfolds through choreography and visual arts for/with human bodies and other forms of life. Strongly anchored in research and in a constant procedural embodiment this journey desires to engage with you by handling experiences that renders (in)reality. Therefore this practice articulates meaningful devices such as wording, the perception of time cadency in contemplation, the inherent choreography that inform, form and affirm or disrupt normalization. You are invited to dwell in a diptych environment: forest or garden or out-doors-natural space / studio-artificial space > with a desire to link both with reciprocity, kin to wilderness and blurring the boundaries.
You are encouraged to become a co-creator attending singular experiences and a living document of the ongoing-process.
Together we will collaborate to perform events/spaces InTrans-formation kin to resilient and benevolent ways of being as a practice. Thus proposing sound and voice practices, movement and dance as weather with all 5 elements, inner-practices and performance-as-space. In all, a common denominator prevails: the encounter between (and departing from) sentient bodies to re-trust and connect – to “CLICK” – as relational beings/creatures that are in contact-touch.

Various exercises will host you to practice and experience the sense-making and responses to the environment (your being in relation to everything) from your physical body to all other dimensions of being.
The LAB is guided and invites various improvisational gates and motions based on plasure and imagination.

to activate Intuition

main resourse: the HEART!!!

welcome!
