OPEN CALL FOR A THEMATIC LAB WITH ANNE TERESA DE KEERSMAEKER, CORENTIN HANNON & KEVIN LAMBEETS ON DANCE & NATURE: ‘HAND POWER, HORSE LABOUR AND DANCE’ (part 3) (July 3 - 7)

Over the last years, outdoor physical labour has increasingly become a source of inspiration for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.
For 2 consecutive years, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Corentin Hannon initiated the workshop ‘Hand power, horse labour and dance’ during Summer. They gathered a diverse group of dancers and non dancers, who shared an interest in outdoor labour and agriculture.
Building on last year’s inspiring collective experience, there will be another sequel this year.
During this workshop you will start the day with movement sessions for dancers and non-dancers alike, guided by Charlotte Cétaire and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. In the afternoon you will explore some (traditional) techniques stemming from agriculture under guidance of Anne Teresa herself and Corentin Hannon: scything guided by Kevin Lambeets of ‘Zeis en Bijl’, wood lumbering, haymaking as well as pulling exercises with draught horses guided by Corentin Hannon & Eva Fillet from Cordeva.During the workshop you will get to work outdoors in a small community, learn how to make fire, learn macrobiotic cooking under the guidance of Valentina Nelissen, spend time on the field whilst exploring a range of techniques and repetitive movements.

How to reconnect our body and the environment?
How to slow down in a world full of impulses?

De School van Gaasbeek serves as a base, while the activities take place in the surrounding fields.
