Six days of workshop in Tunja (Colombia)

From the 30 of July to the 4 of august 2012 Sara Alba went to Tunja, the capital of Boyacá (a province near Bogotá) where she gave a contemporary dance workshop to a new group. The initiative came from the dancer and teacher Mariana Cadena, the director at Colectivo La Caracola. Around 15 persons with different backgrounds participated during a six day long intensive contemporary dance workshop. The students formed a remarkably heterogeneous group of literature students, theatre performers and musicians. Some of them had dance experience, others had never tried contemporary dance before. This workshop, supported by Fundacion Cultural Hibrido, turned into a great and touching experience for Sara and the participants, featuring technical classes, improvisation and composition exercises. After the workshop poems students wrote poems inspired by the classes!

Location for the workshop:
Claustro de Santa Clara la Real (a charming old colonial building).
