Serenity of Mountains Dance and Contact Rituals

28 December 2018 – 1 January 2019

The end of the year in the middle of snowy forests and hillsides in a house open to the landscape with a view of all the beauty around. Five winter days spent together in Orlice mountains, dancing through the nights. Finding new rituals for the time when one year takes the place of the other. An opportunity to come to a rest, be close to each other and see yourself clearly. Feel your own body and listen to yourself deeply. Understand how little suffices.

Everyday softening, movement, touching and awakening the body altogether. Forenoon dance classes, contact games, improvisation and flying. After lunch wanders through the countryside, bathing in the freezing waters below the cliff side in the junction of the wild rivers, tales, storytelling, walks into the mountains. Getting close to each other, mutual understanding.

And once it gets dark, each of the long evenings we dance on jams of dance and contact improvisation with live music, with an unexpected spell, always with a different mood and with all that we put into it. We will jam with a dance both gentle and wild, sweating and immersed. That is a godlike New Year’s Eve for us.

You can come for the whole gathering or just for a while, for a day or two, just the way it pleases you. You will be welcome, expected and a place will be always ready for you here. When you enter, listen… from the very first moment.

Žíl is in Orlice Mountains and is located in the village of Javornice – Přím. The GPS coordinates are 50.169522, 16.392851 If you plane to come by train or bus let us know in advance, we can come for you.

Zita Pavlištová

She will be leading the morning blocks dedicated to body and mind awakening. In the morning, she will initiate you to the secrets of contact improvisation, cooperation with partner and movement games. At the beginning of each jam, there will be a brief introductory joint tuning, examining different qualities, different moods, feelings, and inspirations to move.

Michal Turek

He accompanies every evening jam with improvised music on cello and electric guitar and with singing, word, poetry and rap. At the same time he creates a sound atmosphere during the morning movement classes.
