Dates already scheduled:

August 7th, 2022 // #training The monkey in the wolf and the wolf in the monkey with Greta Salgado: Greta will share some methods of mobility and fluctuation from contemporary floor technique, as well as some resistance based techniques of her own interpretation from Brazilian jiujitsu training. Passing from being our own partners, being the partners with the floor and being the floor for ourselves and for another body. Bodies with all sort of physical, emotional, spiritual and mental backgrounds welcome!

August 14th, 2022 // #training Power from open structures with Emmanuel Große: The training will be a space for sensing in dynamic and powerful movements. It is based in contemporary dance. It provides tools to go through somatic approaches into powerful and dynamic motion. We will explore our own bodies to find the activation within ourselves to create a body that feels easy even when the movement becomes difficult and challenging and then we swet.


    FREAKY – movement laboratory & training is an experimental format for movement research and knowledge sharing, a laboratory for physical training. Each #lab or #training is facilitated by locals with a professional background as performers, dancers, movers, etc. thus providing a very diverse range of practice. The wish and vision is to learn from each other, to support one another with individual resources, to grow and improve together and create an interdisciplinary community in Cologne and beyond. FREAKY is open to all levels and disciplines. We want to achieve a high level of movement, but in mixed groups of amateurs and professionals. All are welcome!


    #lab | #training > 90 minutes

    #jam (each last date of the month) > 120 minutes, including 30 minutes introduction
