Introducing our Artists and Space Holders
We are brimming with excitement to announce our line-up of wonderful facilitators, space holders, musicians and artists, to guide, inspire, encourage and hold us on our way throughout our Rumble Camp weekends.
Most will join us for one weekend only, so please check the specific programmes for details of when sessions will be.
One thing for sure is that there will be a diverse yet grounding mix of wonderful opportunities to meet and explore, to sink into our bodies and to find our way to fully welcome ourselves to the space with all that we bring.
Introducing the Rumble 2021 facilitators and artists.. In no particular order..
OK - Dancing first, then sounds.. We did say Rumble was all about dance, right?..
5 Rhythms with Jason Rowe
Jason fell in love with the 5Rhythms in 2003, graduated with Gabrielle Roth as a teacher in 2011 and has been teaching continuously ever since.
"I’m excited and honoured to be part of the Rumble Camp this Summer offering the 5Rhythms. With space for multiple sessions over several days we will have so much opportunity for real, deep, creative, playful and enriching connections through dance.
The maps of the practice mirror life, and with everyone living together in a festival atmosphere I have no doubt this will be a wonderful experience for seasoned dancers and beginners alike."
Emerging Dances – Contact Improvisation with Mark Rietema
For these Contact Improvisation Classes I want to return to some of the groundwork of CI. The playful, physical joy of lifting, sharing weight, of moving fast and slow is supported by a ground of listening, of noticing feedback and of trusting an emergent dance that arises from the unique meeting of two or more individuals.
We will warm up our dancing bodies, minds and hearts through playful exercise to then move into contact. I’ll aim to prepare us to improvise and to enjoy the dance that wants to arise. See you on the dance floor!
Mark Rietema teaches Contact Improvisation, Body-Mind Centering (tm) and other workshops in the UK and internationally. He practices as a psychotherapist and somatic practitioner in London. See Mark's website here
HeartWave with Dominik Schnell
Dominik has been passionately engaged in dance for over two decades, exploring performance, contemporary, contact dance as well as many forms of expressive dance styles. He draws from his rich experience as facilitator, combining dance, tantra and process work.
A HeartWave is about connecting us to the deepest parts of ourselves through the power of movement and meditation, held safely as we journey in and out of relating, in and out of shadow, in and out of our fear.
Above all HeartWave is a deeply liberating exploration of our inert yearning for belonging, connection and togetherness. A HeartWave is for everyone, no experience required, solo or couple – all is welcome! More on HeartWaves here
