'Ímpar' in Portuguese means "odd" or "unpaired". It is also a perfect mesh of the words that define this project: 'impro' + 'par'  (pair)! Ímpar was born in Colares in 2019, when Constança and Pramod started mixing forró with contact improvisation... since then it has been developing and unfolding in multiple courses and workshops across the country, mixing many dances and other art forms.

In this 2nd edition of the Ímpar Gathering, the theme'Re.Pair = Authenticity & Attachment' will guide us in a danced exploration around a major inner conflicts that undermine relationships and limit our dances: the choice we often feel we have to do between being our true selves versus bonding with others and belonging.


What if we could weave this apparent paradox into healthier forms of dancing and relating?

Through deep body-mind awareness practices, playful dance games and safe sharing circles, we will re.pair > find new ways of pairing in which our sense of authenticity is restored and our attachment wounded patterns are healed.

Everyone is welcome to ÍMPAR if they come with respect and awareness. Some experience with couple dances or contact improvisation is recommended but not mandatory. Whoever comes should be willing to open mind and heart, show up in front of others and expand the limits of their comfort zone! You don't need to bring a dance partner (everyone will dance with everyone!)
