Cultivating loving kindness TIME 8:45-9:45 (BST)

Self-care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” - Parker Palmer
In this Vinyasa flow we will nourish our body with stretches and fluid movements, and enjoy a Metta (Loving kindness) meditation at the end to cultivate unconditional well-wishing both for ourselves and all other beings.
Suitable for all

Vanessa’s teaching style makes people feel welcome, included, respected and safe. Her mission is to empower people to notice how their energy levels, breath quality and emotions can flow when they use their bodies in specific ways.
With an MA in Dance Performance and more than 1000 hours of Teacher Trainings in Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Dance Education, she offers students a unique perspective on how moving mindfully and becoming aware of our habitual holding patterns can help break the stress loop we are often stuck-in and allow our bodies to be more available, free of tension and more grounded.


Stories of performing and parenthood

TIME 10-10:45am (BST)

Being a dancer I always wondered how on earth could such an unordinary, unpredictable and self-centred job be combined with having a child. Childcare in the performing arts has become a hot-topic in the last 6 years, somehow coinciding with the birth of my first child (funny how that happens). P.I.P.A. (Parents in Performing Arts) was first funded around that time and I started writing my blog towards the end of 2014. Online resources were scarce then and still are now but significantly less so.
I invite you to converse with me and share your’s and listen to other’s stories of performing and parenthood. Training, breastfeeding, touring, your body, your struggles and your successes.
The crisis of our industry in the time of pandemic has forced us to revisit our way of working and training methods and of course the relationship between that and our family. What are we learning?

TIME 12-1pm (BST)

Join us for a rare opportunity to listen to Leila McMillan in conversation with David Zambrano from remote locations. There’ll be lots of talking and laughing… They’ll discuss intersections between teaching and choreographic practice, Zambrano’s solo improvisation project during lockdown and the transition from traveling to being more stationary. How we stay alive through moving, how we keep a sense of playfulness in all that we do…

Leila McMillan is an international dance artist, teacher and choreographer, who creates work that is high-energy yet nuanced and abstract in its choreography, drawing on personal experiences focusing on themes of identity, gender and the cultural interface. Collaboration is at the heart of her process and Flying Low/Passing Through techniques support her artistic practice. Since receiving a place on David Zambrano’s 50 Days Flying Low and Passing Through (2010), Leila is one of the internationally certified artists teaching these techniques and has led the development of this approach in the UK. From 2012-2020 she was co-founder/Director of Muxima, an Independent cafe in Bow, East London, regularly producing art, music and performance events, awarded several times ‘Best Cafe in East London’.

For over 35 years, David Zambrano has been a monumental figure in the international dance community, and his passion for cultural exchange continues to influence his work. Teaching and performing internationally, Zambrano is an ambassador and liaison across many borders, bringing together artists from all over the planet for his projects. An inspiring teacher, thrilling performer, and innovative choreographer, Zambrano has contributed generously to the field of dance in ways that have influenced many and impacted the dance world from several angles. His development of the “Flying Low” and “Passing Through” techniques are among his recent innovations that have helped to lead improvisational dance into an exciting future. Most recently along with Mat Voorter they opened Tic Tac an international centre for artists in Brussels.



TIME 1:30-3pm (BST)

We are lost in the desert. We have come to a fork in the road. We have no map. Our ship is lost at sea. A storm is brewing. We have run out of supplies. There is a dark forest growing around us.
What do we do when no one is in charge, when there is no clear direction, when the future seems to be slipping away from us? How do we navigate the storm both as individuals and as a collective?
We will work with movement, speech, writing and conversation to unlock these questions and look to improvisational practices as tools for survival.
*An interregnum is a period of discontinuity or "gap" in a government, organisation, or social order.

Payatt INtransit

TIME 3:30-5:30 (BST)

Payatt INtransit is a contemporary movement technique that combines movement principles from the ancient Indian martial art form of Kalaripayattu with yogic practices and energy work to stimulate the source of energy in our body. It trains the practitioners in a safe, organic and yet rigorous way to become more confident, relaxed, flexible and powerful, training us to be quick in our reflexes, while simultaneously guiding us to cultivate a constant inner calm. The class challenges our physical and mental limits, training the physicality to be quick, energetic, while mentally we remain calm, and relaxed, undisturbed by the agitation of physicality. We learn to isolate the strong physical aspect of this class from the constant calm within, enabling us to gain complete control over the movement rather that the movement controlling us. and enhancing our ability to adapt to unexpected situations and make innovative yet efficient choices, we combine our physical energy and with the energy around us.

Suitable for professional dancers, movers, performers

In the past 10 years Rakesh has been working on developing a contemporary movement method called Payatt INtransit - using Kalarippayattu and contemporary movement techniques, yoga and energy work. He has been invited to teach Payatt INtransit at various festivals and for companies such as Sidi Larbi’s company, Ultima Vez, Impuls Tanz at the summer festival/summer schools of Deltebre Danza Spain, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Colombo Dance Factory Zurich, Dancentrumjette Brussels, University of Costa Rica, Concordia University Canada, Drama school Helsinki, Bremen, SEAD in Salzburg and so on. He also works as a freelance performer/ choreographer, collaborating with various artists and doing solo works & improvisations.
He currently lives in Brussels Belgium , dividing his time between Europe, America and Asia


A journey beyond time and space

TIME 6-7:30 (BST)

This workshop is the closing event of the Trip The Light Fantastic TV festival.
As we close these three intense days Jose invites us to be part of an artistic/ritualistic journey which, through movement, will connect us to our inner self, with others and with the cosmos, at an energetic level. Jose’s teaching is influenced by researching the links between artistic practice and shamanic practice.
Jose invites us to gather, wake up our collective magical powers and create a Vibration Ritual of Human connection that transcends social, cultural, and political boundaries as well as geographical ones. The intention is to experience wholeness and embody the true sensation that we are one and part of the totality, the wholeness

Suitable for all

Born in the south of Chile in the city of Valdivia, José Luis Vidal studied Anthropology and Sociology before beginning his dance studies. In 1996 he studied in New York on a scholarship from the American Dance Festival, and after working as a performer in various European companies, he obtained a Masters in Choreography from LCDS. His works is deeply influenced by his fundamental interest in the interdependence of structure and chaos, collectivity, community and society, arising from the sum of individual bodies. He derives his choreographic strategies from his intensive engagement with various natural and cultural phenomena. His artistic research is influenced by the interaction of organisms in natural ecosystems; animal swarm behaviour, flocking, spiritual rituals, but also rave and techno culture.
