WARM UP DANCE JAM         




est un événement mensuel avec l’intention de stimuler le mouvement créatif ─ un projet initié par Nicholas Bellefleur et co-créé avec Jonah Leslie. Chaque édition se compose de configurations uniques: une évolution de lumières et accessoires avec lesquels vous est offert d’interagir tout au long de la soirée … le studio devient un terrain de jeu exploratoire ! C’est un espace sans jugement invitant tous les types de corps (expérimentés ou non) à venir s’exprimer à travers l’improvisation, la spontanéité et le jeu. Le choix de mouvements de chaque corps n’est pas prescrit par un cadre autre que celui d’improviser sur la musique. Cet évènement s’accorde dans la même lignée que A SAFE SPACE, soit celle de rencontrer des inconnu.e.s par le mouvement et par la mise en situation et suggérer une reconnection à leurs corps. Le taux de participation à l'événement et le feedback démontre un réel besoin, dans ce monde effréné et divisé, d’avoir accès à un espace libéré de pression et de contrôle permettant de connecter avec nos corps et notre créativité, de manière collective.



WARM UP DANCE JAM is a monthly event proposed with intentions to stimulate creative movement ─ a project initiated by Nicholas Bellefleur and co-created with Jonah Leslie. Each edition has unique configurations with lighting and props to interact with, often evolving throughout the course of the evening ... we turn the studio into an explorative playground ! This is a safe space which welcomes all types of bodies (experienced or not) to come express and process through improvisation, spontaneity, and playfulness. Movement is not guided by any other frame than to improvise on music. This event aligns with the research of A SAFE SPACE as it aims to meet strangers through non-verbal communication and suggest a reconnection to their bodies. Participation rates of the event, and feedback has shown a definitive need for this kind of access to an improductive space liberated from pressure of being, looking or creating a certain way. Here we gather collectively in order to connect.
