Dance and physical theatre show/performances conducted by Jordi L. Vidal, tailor-made on site, according to the space and the frame they will be played in. These formulas are highly adaptable to different technical circumstances and it can be played outdoors or indoors, day or night.
These projects can be adapted to different topics. We have already tackled the issues of transformation, dreams, the other: barriers and limits, diversity...
We like to create with the local population. It is designed for everyone from 18 to 100 years old! (amateurs and professionals) who is willing to explore their creativity together with their physicality.
The minimum length is one week, Monday to Saturday or Sunday, 8h x day.
During this period, we will carry out laboratories in dance and physical theatre on the chosen theme. These experiences are a mix between workshops, pedagogical learning and rehearsals on one side, and artistic and performative aspects on the other.
The performance’s material comes out of guided improvisations and is subsequently developed and enriched throughout the sessions.
It is based on a common point for everyone: the body and its expression, its presence, its spatial significance, its conscious and unconscious images ... therefore its own language.
It is developed with a positive perspective, to encourage the idea that from a "real" interest, need, desire ... everyone can play and any movement is performative.
This is a unique opportunity to experience the process of creating a show in a respectful way on the personality of each one and both with high standards of quality and everyone’s commitment.
The goals are, amongst others:
• Participants have a" Here And Now” presence, through connecting their imagination to the movement of their body.
• That they will (re) discover their own movement expression and to (re) develop their personality as well as their own creative potential.
• Creations in resonance with the chosen place and theme.
• Original and contemporary works and at the same time, universal.
Following the final performance each participant is invited to a friendly meal together and also receives a free copy of the video footage and photos taken during the performance by photographic and audiovisual professionals.

"Firstly, thank you for making me live such a beautiful experience, to have believed and made us feel so loved! In the final presentation, I felt supported by the audience and the group, I felt that everything breathed kindness. To listen to oneself and to others, to be fully present, reactive and generous .... a super program that I loved !" Anne, painter

“Already a week that it is finished and I still think about it ... What a beautiful week! Great experience! A very nice group, beautiful encounters, a common energy ... And then a huge thank you for your investment, your confidence, your encouragement, to have believed in each of us, to have allowed us to go on stage after only 5 days of work, and, according to the echoes of our benevolent relatives, it worked wonderfully!” Marie, physiotherapist
“I loved the laboratories that you proposed, each time with a way to go further, the tools of creation and reflection that you brought. The timing seemed to me tip-top as well.” Solange
“It was a very interesting work for me. I was afraid to live hard things emotionally, but in fact not at all. It was joyful, playful, pleasant, soothing even. I like the way you work. Rythmic and sustained but still relaxed. I liked that there is not too much blabla but above all the action, the "doing", to be able to observe others, to test, to live it. Not to be too many but enough to have energy circulating.” Fanny, musician
“A thousand thanks for this unique experience that you allowed us to have. For me it was a golden opportunity to get back into the realm of performing arts and creating the way I love above all, that is, positively!” Celine, cinema programmer
