Qs & As

 

Do I need to have experience in these techniques? No, you don’t need to have any experience, you just need to feel ready to make a new experience. However there will be other participants who may already have practises of these techniques, but every participant work on his/her own level and the teachings are about principles and not forms of movement. The main technique is improvisation, so you will have the freedom to work with the given principles at your own pace and mood. in these practices beginners and advanced participants have the joy of experiencing something together. No matter what your level is, every new practise is a fresh initiation!

 

What clothes do I need? Please bring comfortable training clothes, also clothes for changing a couple of times as the practises may make you sweat, or sometimes you may feel cold and may want to add a layer. You can practise barefoot or with socks. The whole studio is a shoe-free zone. 

 

Can I take showers? Yes there are showers in the studios and we strongly recommend it as we will work in close contact sometimes.

 

Can I leave my clothes and toiletries in the Studios? Yes you may bring all you need and store it in the lockers of the dressing rooms. There will be no other activities during the Retreat, the whole venue will be reserved only to the participants of this workshop.

 

Are there accommodation possibilities?  Yes you may reserve your nights in a flat in the same building with our studio. For more information please contact us at info@limpidworks.com

 

Can I bring food ? Yes you may bring your own snacks in case you do not wish to go out for lunch. The studios are equipped with kitchen corners, however there is not possibility for cooking. You may use the fridges and all equipment (glasses, cups, cutlery) which are at your disposal. There will be refreshments and little snacks offered by the production, but you may bring your salads or sandwiches and enjoy the terrace for your lunch break or pauses. The kitchen corners have also a variety of teas and coffees, we also have a original Turkish coffee machine for coffee lovers…

 

Do I really have to be silent all the time? We recommend to respect this rule of the retreat, also not to disturb the others. However if you will have a case of emergency and need urgently to express yourself, you may do so without disturbing the other participants by whispering to the instructors, or finding the appropriate time during the pauses. You may also try to communicate with your eyes and gestures, or simple take a paper and pen and write little messages. There will be a message board for those who would like to share their thoughts and emotions (only for participants of the Retreat of course). The instructors will speak and give the necessary information during the practises, in order to be able to guide you and not leave you alone in unknown worlds :)

 

How do I find comfort, in case I feel a little shy? This is a retreat time for you. You can just relax. The workshop is not performance based. Every participant will work on his/her level of experience. The aim is to have gentle time during the these practises, in order to feel better and discover something about yourself. there are not strict rules, and even if the program is made, the instructors will adapt to the flow of the group, making sure as much as they can that the well being of each participant is met. when you feel like taking a break you may do so without disturbing the others. You may get a refreshment or during water at anytime or the practises (again without disturbing the others) and you may re-connect and join the practise when you feel ready. If you are new to these practises in silence you may ask one of the instructors for a little talking session at the end of the day and get some reassuring from them :) Remember: this is a time for you and your well being.
