4 inspirering weeks with dance performances & dialogue

We humans do not only understand the world through our brains, but also through our bodies. Where is the line between brain and body? Is there a clear distinction?

Bora Bora welcomes you to a festival focusing on body, brain and movement.

Through dance performances from home and abroad, lectures with experts, conversation salons, audience conversations with artists, workshops, documentaries, etc. together with your fellow audience members and the festival's artists, you can attempt to put into words the experiences of both the brain and the body. You can look forward to four weeks that challenge and move you mentally.

OCT 20 & 21: R.OSA - 10 Exercises for New Virtuosities - Silvia Gribaudi (ITA)

OCT 27 & 28: Mass Effect - HIMHERANDIT Productions (UK)

Trainers squeak as feet pulse into the floor and bodies thrust across the stage. Seven athletic dancers share their breath, sweat, formations, and rhythms to collectively face one single challenge: surpass physical limitations and transcend together into unknown territories of bodily capacity.
