All events are included in the ticket price. Due to limited capacity at some events, we kindly ask you to register in advance.
The two dance techniques voguing and stripping are the core of dancer and choreographer Gerard Reyes’ solo THE PRINCIPLE OF PLEASURE. The workshop will guide you technically, imaginatively and somatically through both dance styles. We will take on and discard various gendered behaviours in order to find and express untapped areas of our personalities. Come with an open mind and leave with a freer body!
