Last Call: Bohemian Monastery- Residency Holiday 

12-20th July, Czech Republic.

Contact, Tango, Voice & Movement into Physical Theatre

conducted by Javier Cura & Moss Beynon Juckes


This year we will research fantasy, allegory and childhood, to reinvent the future, rediscover our pasts and open possibilities of perception. We will also take our inspiration from the surrounding Nature and the magical Franciscan monastery. This week is about creating a supportive group, making connections between body work, environment, performance and lifestyle.


We will use principles of Contact Improvisation, tango, martial arts, voice movement integration and physical theatre to embody these ideas. Then further develop them into personal goals, ritual, games, and performances, focusing on the positive perspective that personal change can impact a wider change.


We will train our body and voice in the most energetically efficient way, with the minimum physiological cost and with the greatest care, nurturing our relation to Earth, developing a dynamic grounding, discovering our given anatomical structure and the given natural laws that apply to them.


In the end of the week we will share our work with friends, guests and Bechyne villagers through a performance. This performance is not at all compulsory and each one is invited to participate in the way she/he feels like.
