Collective life

The Enchanted Circle is both a retreat around vocal and body improvisation, and a moment of togetherness within the framework of an ephemeral collective

Food

We will be self-managed for the meals. We, the participants, will do the cooking. We will organise ourselves in teams. Everyone will take part in the preparation of one or two meals during the week and will make a financial contribution to the meals.

Break from workshops

So there will be times during the week when some of the participants will not be participating in the workshops to prepare the food for the next meal 😉

Collaborative organization

During the week, everyone will have small roles to play to enable the group to function as a collective (the role of “washing up”, the role of “compost”, the role of “broom”, the role of “postman”, etc). Yes, we will even have a postman!

Shared materials

Présence à soi et au monde will provide us with basic material for workshops and cooking, but we will also share various small things that some people will bring (floor mats, blankets, cushions, blender and useful utensils for the week…).

Bilingualism

The retreat is bilingual French/English. Practical information will always be given in both languages. However, about half of the workshops will be in French and the other half in English. Workshops will not be translated into the other language unless the facilitator wishes.

Playing without understanding

Coming to the retreat is an experience of bilingualism in the knowledge that if you don’t speak both languages, there may be times when you simply have to follow the flow without relying on an oral understanding of what is happening!
