ACTIVITIES AND TRAINING SCHEDULE 2023
WHO CAN ATTEND AND WHAT IS NEEDED?
All those people interested in movement, the body and natural spaces, whether professionals or amateurs, who want to explore and merge Contact Improvisation with other Movement Arts, in an environment that invites us to discover new possibilities for our mobility. You only need your sleeping bag, extremely comfortable clothes and something in case of rain, the rest, ifyou want, we will provide it!
WHERE WILL WE BE?
Next to the Cavallers reservoir, a peripheral area of the Aigüestortes i Estany d'Sant Maurici National Park, in the Vall de Boí (Lleida). There we have a base camp with tents to share, dining room, kitchen, showers and toilets. The 2 dance halls are located in the Balneario de Caldes de Boí, a 10-minute walk from the camp along a mountain path. The Spa also has a hotel, for those seeking a luxurious stay. In the area there is the possibility of parking with a van or caravan. Free camping is prohibited. The closest towns are Erill la Vall and Boí. The entire valley is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for the high value of its Romanesque Art. To get there, there are regular buses from Barcelona and Lleida to Pont de Suert, a town where the valley is mainly supplied, and from there you can take another bus to the Caldes de Boí Spa. Hitchhiking works pretty well in the area. And from the organization we can help you find links to share vehicles.
WHAT OTHER ACTIVITIES CAN BE DONE?
In addition to dancing, we are very close to the Caldes de Boi Spa. And if you arrive earlier, or leave later, you can enjoy all the mountain activities: hiking, climbing, canyoning, etc. In Cavallers itself there is a strong climbing tradition and there are routes for lovers of granite: alpine climbing, sport climbing and a bouldering area. All the towns in the Valley have churches, hermitages, paintings and architecture from the Romanesque period. And not many kilometers away we can find adventure sports companies that offer activities such as rafting or canyoning. If there is something that you particularly want, do not hesitate to ask us. We can put you in contact with Mountain Guides in the area.
WHO ORGANIZES PYRENEES IN DANCE?
We are Laura Lara Mariscal (Dancer and Aerialist of La Viruta) and Teresa Martín-Sauceda (Dancer and director of the NaNa Danza Project company). Both members of the "DANZA EN PLURAL" association, whose objectives are: to create, encourage, promote and disseminate cultural activities, mainly to generate new spaces for contemporary dance and other movement techniques and related disciplines. With Pyrenees in Dance we want to move and move to new heights. Can you come with us?
