'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.

From morning to evening, there will be body awareness practices, playful games, workshops with different teachers and open spaces for participants to learn and experiment with each other... and, of course, the Ímpar jams! 


This edition, 'Revelation = Revolution in Relation', will be about exploring and opening up possibilities in how we relate to others. How do we give and receive in a relationship? When is it easy to trust, and when is it difficult? How much do we compromise to meet the other? How do our inner critics affect our authenticity? Dance will be our main door to discovering the revelations these questions hold for us. We explore improvised artmaking within the universes of different social dances (tango, forró, folk.. even fado!), harvest tools from contact improvisation and somatic movement and play with other arts such as clown and voice improv. The revolutions can me many:

- discovering and empowering parts of you that really want to have space to breathe and play

- going beyond your fears and reconnecting to the source of trust within

- feeling more "yourself" in your many dances in life

- increasing your vitality and movement possibilities

- turning couple dance into improvised artmaking

- shedding light and transforming limiting relationship patterns

Having said that, it is important that you understand that this will be your journey, your process... there is no expectation from us about what you should take away from it, how you should dance, etc... the only goal is that it is useful and enriching to you and to your needs of the moment. Come as you are and own the process :)

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!)
