Dance & Art Retreat     25 August – 1 September


The workshop

We dance and create in the rustic studio, in forest, fields, and historical ruins. This will be supported by sessions of bodywork, writing, meditation, sun bathing and a swim in the lake. With the quiet green surroundings of Createrre as ground inspiration.


– stretching & mobilisation before breakfast
– Movement classes with Kristien, with elements of (contact) improvisation, composition, butoh, bodywork

– Art classes with Matt, some days field trips, some days extra dance jam

– Optional singing
– Some nights: Art/Dance jam, singing at the fireplace…

…Mornings will be in silence…


You have the opportunity to work with two experienced makers and teachers. Both intrigued by the body in communication with the landscape.

* Matt Jackson*

Loves to go on treasure hunts, to make the most amazing creatures from what ever he takes home. Multidisciplinary artist, working on paper, making performances with puppets and creating sculptures, puppets, objects from all kinds of (preferably natural) materials.

* Kristien Sonnevijlle *

Loves to see the human body as a material. She’s getting to know it a little closer and deeper through cranio sacral work at the moment. A never ending quest for listening to the body’s whispering before shaping it with our ideas. What does my body tell? How does it echo the landscape?
