The ENCIMA of Chapada - Contact Improvisation Gathering on the Mountains and Waters of Chapada Diamantina, will lead us from the pure waters of Capão Valley to the sacred mountains of Pati Valley, in a dance and nature immersion, opening a sensory space for a dialogue of the body with the environment.

At Vale do Capão, we will be opening the projects of this new space for study, healing and expansion called Terra Viva, an magic place in the end of the valley at the foot of Morro Branco (White Hill).

This reality is under construction, it is not yet ready. However it is ready for anyone who wants to participate in the collective creation, and who is available to take the necessary time and process for it to exist. 

We invite everyone who wants to co-create and deeply experience this reality to arrive early to help prepare the land and sow the intention of the encounter. Together we will build spaces, plan meals,and even choose themes we want to explore.

We will make a pre-encounter, the Seed Encounter that will take place from December 15th to January 7th, where we will be improving the dance spaces, the reception structure, dry toilets, making vegetable gardens and experiencing permaculture, agroforestry and bio-construction in the practice of community.

We perceive all as teachers and as students, each one has his personal magic. Therefore, in addition to the guest teachers' classes, we will be opening some spaces of experiences so the participants that want can share their research, and the programming will be set up according to the proposals that will appear.

After this movement in the Capão, we will follow in our dancing walk crossing the Pati Valley. There will be seven days of retreat, where we will take the time to breathe, observe, digest, contemplate, until arriving at the Dona Linda's house, a beloved native elder who will receive us in the heart of the diamonds forest. Be prepair for great moments of listening, silence, small dances, great waterfalls, movement and stillness.
