Masterclass Copyleft

This masterclass is a space for research and study for jugglers, dancers and acrobats based on the principles of copyleft and improvisation in groups. It will be for each participant to allow himself to use and distribute as many modified versions of styles, techniques, knowledge and findings. It will be about making creation and knowledge a common good. This Masterclass is an intense and immersive moment where the body is at the center of the work: the body in relation to space, to objects to others. An internship in the circus and dance boundaries whose goal is to find the dance / juggling / acrobatics that belong to you, create a space to develop individual concerns and relationship to the group.
