Train Distance Dance Training: Pleasure Zombies

Pleasure zombies is non-hierarchical training practise. We will work with how to practice from a place of rest, imperfection and pleasure, all kinds of pleasures, and we will explore what happens individually and collectively when we practice from this space. To attend this class you must be ready to break with tabus around shaming, competition and exhaustion/overproduction as value systems. The training celebrates body positivity and is inclusive and open to all genders and bodies, but encourages womxn/fem and queer identities to participate.

Dansehallerne (DK), Danscentrum (SV), and PRODA (NO) are all institutions that offer training for professional dance artists.   

In week 11, 12, and 13 2022, a pilot project will be carried out for increased collaboration between each organization’s teaching program with the intention to share knowledge and increase sustainability.   

Within the framework of this new Nordic co-operation, an artist/ teacher is selected from each country to rotate between Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen in a 3-week teaching tour. The tour is woven into each organization’s regular programming and will enrich the participants experience by getting to know new teaching methods and 
cultures while widening their current network. This idea came from our urge to contribute to a well-functioning and sustainable ecosystem for dance by offering longer periods per assignments and choosing touring by train 
over flying. 

The curated dance teachers and artists are: 
Xiri Tara Noir (DK) w11, Mari Carrasco (SE) w12 and Hanna Filomen Mjåvatn (NO) w13  

We encourage you to continue looking after yourself & each other, and will no longer check corona passes at training, only your tickets;)

The training can be assisted for dancers with visual impairment, but unfortunately not with hearing impairments. Class will be in english, but language isn’t a barrier for participation.
Wheelchair access.
Please bring a notebook and pen.
