4x4 planetary dance findhorn


A twelve-day event on the theme of dance, body and the environment for dance or movement artists, choreographers and artists working in related art-forms.

"Somewhere in the midst of 'sustainability' lies an inspiring vision of transformation. As movement artists we will take our dance and choreographic practice into this territory, developing and deepening our sense of the self within the body, to inspire and engender a vital reconnection between humanity and the planet".

The invited artists and teachers will be attending and contributing to 4x4, for between two and twelve days.
