Lannion, Bretagne 22300, France

After the magical success of the first session of « Contact by the sea », the collective L’oeil et la main is happy to offer you to come back to the sea, in Lannion, Brittany. The program is very simple : a mini-series of days to practice doing-nothing in the mornings (hiking, bathing, reading, dancing solo on the coast of Brittany), Contact Improvisation workshops in the afternoon to spice or discover this amazing form of dance, jams in the evenings to freely and collectively experiment with the ingredients of the day. The studio, located 10 minutes from the nearest shore by car, has comfy and elegant wooden floors and belongs to a small community center.

Afternoon workshops and labs:

Duets of teachers coming from France : Céline Auclair, Romain Bigé, Catherine Kych, Cléo Laigret, Gerry Quévreux, Céline Robineau, Marie Rousseaux and Justine Wojtyniak, who will pair up to propose materials elaborated during the mornings while the participants will practice doing-nothing under the sun of Brittany.

Evening jams:

Jams are spaces of free practice allowing every participant to explore freely their way through Contact Improvisation. Through a clear frame, our evening jams will propose spaces for the study and joy of tumbling, rolling, flying and observing the dance.
