About The Event

  •  We invite you to a deep dive into this playfull and rich practice:

Together we will craft a state of flow and presence in our own body and in the connection with our partner so that we can share a rich ground to play together. Soft and Full.

  • We invite you to melt into this warmly held frame and come on an exploration journey with us beyond wrong and right:

We will not learn a form or method “how to… “ But trough the explorations we cultivate a state of listening and availability that allows us to be in connection, flow together and staying with what there is.

  • We invite you to unlearn and so to make space for what is there and what we as group create together:

In that sense ”undoing” is a central aspect of this practice, because there is nothing that we must/can “do” to be in connection, to be in the flow and to be present. Quite the contrary there is a lot that we can stop doing that is preventing us for being in connection like planning, forcing, trying, wanting and so on.

  • We retreat together to explore!

So we will guide you through a varied journey by diving in the wide spectrum between subtle body-listening and playful free interaction and confrontation.

In all this we hope to support you in cultivating in your body a sense of aliveness, softness, fullness…


Our common movement language is inspired by PLAYFIGHT PRACTICE founded by Bruno Caverna. Ester collaborates with Bruno since 2016 and she practices and teaches PlayFight in Europe since several years, integrating this particular language with her personal background in contemporary dance, contact improvisation, somatics & most recent craniosacral therapy.

Since the beginning of 2022 we started to explore teaching together and to merge our approaches and understandings because we sense a lot of common and fertile ground. We are very happy about this enriching collaboration and so we are looking forward to share some of the fruits with you!
