If you’ve been involved in a movement practice for a while, then this may be for you: a format designed to radically open up your ability to work creatively and effectively with your specific personal material.
We’re aiming for a group of dancers who have both the will and the experience to focus their work in a more specific way than is possible in a conventional workshop setting.
Being residential, we can work long hours whilst still having time to rest and integrate: although there will be times for moving together, the heart of our work will happen with each of you moving individually, with the support of myself and the group, taking your practice to a whole new level. You’ll get to open out your perception of what’s possible and free up your radical potential in motion.
“This is the most advanced work I offer: if you already have some experience with a movement practice, including the ability to embody and express your feelings through movement, if you’re now seeking to create a more personal and particular relationship between your own unique path and practice then you are welcome to jump in. Write to me if you have any questions.” Adam
“Deep Focus helps me to accept and navigate unusual states. Being witnessed by the whole group and supported by Adam’s intuitive, sensitive and powerful guidance is a unique opportunity. I can’t compare it to any other workshops.”
— Kata Máthé, Graphic artist
Venue: you will spend 5 days immersed in a natural setting, at the highly comfortable and cosy retreat centre Quinta da Enxara, in Mafra. Sleeping in a yurt in contact with the elements, eating an Ayurvedic vegetarian & organic diet and spending evenings around the fire will be part of the “work”.
