Ecstatic Dance Intensive 20 - 22 mrt 2020 Cancelled due Coronavirus
In his own words: "The journey is key in Ecstatic Dance. I like to create a cathartic musical journey, which adds up to more than the sum of the individual elements. Enjoyment is integral, but having a transcending experience; the music guiding body and soul to unusual places, is what makes a true Ecstatic Dance special.
My feel for the journey stems from my own adventurous spirit, always yearning for the wonderment of seeing a mountain glistening in the sun, or a lake on a windless day, or the Pleiades in the night sky for the first time. My main influence growing up was progressive rock, the great concept albums of yore, incredible journeys in their own right. Then progressive house at the turn of the millennium: those magnificent euphoric ramps and drops for ever and ever cascading into the future. And the spirit of Africa where I was born and raised, the drum which is the heartbeat of our bodily existence. My choices are very eclectic as is part and parcel of the core qualities of a DJ, to bring you that personal melange you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. Always staying close to music with a core which reflects the pure energies embodied in us: crown, heart and hips, light and dark. Deep earth and volcanic eruptions, euphoric peaks in the stratosphere. And a cello to touch you gently. All genres and styles are building blocks or tools to use in the journey - this is the incredibly vast creative beauty of this medium. "
(saturday evening: DARK ECSTATIC)
DivanA has been playing at clubs, festivals, workshops & raves for over twelve years (previously under his alias Navcore). As resident DJ of multiple Ecstatic Dances in the biggest cities of the Netherlands, he intuitively tunes in to the crowd and communicates with them in the language of music.
The entire spectrum of genres and global regions are involved in his musical adventures. Within this limitless style he stands out with originality & experimentalism. He doesn't only simply mix 2 tracks together. His mastery of his extensive DJ set results in unique transitions, live mashups & tribal re-touches. The groove can vary from very relaxed to highly energetic; it always grabs your soul and takes you on an unmistakable journey. DivanA loves fancy gender-bending outfits and aims to create a very inclusive atmosphere. (sundaymorning )
DreadVox Under the name DreadVox, Rasta Robert and Paul op de Weegh present improvisations with handpan, theremin and voice at a concert at Landgoed AlGoed . Robert plays the theremin, one of the few instruments that are not touched while playing. The sound is best known for spooky sounds in horror and science fiction movies, but has much more options than just that. This ancient synthesizer was invented in 1920 by the Russian scientist Leon Theremin as one of the first electronic musical instruments in the world. The Handpan is played by percussionist Paul op de Weegh. Paul has years of experience as a musician and teaches children and adults in twente. The handpan is the musical instrument of the 21st century. It is a beautiful instrument and it also has many musical possibilities. It provides a warm sound and that is what makes it so popular (Friday evening)

In this workshop we are going to dive deeply into a living experiment as a work of art in which we all tune and play the unique creative instrument we are.
Maurice will guide us to explore what is possible in two hours when we embrace our unique gift by fully attuning ourselves to nature, to who we uniquely are, and how we can embody this. With the use of Awakening Breathwork, Energy (chi) Activation, Authentic Movement and Chanting (tuning) we invite ourselves to embrace our bodies as the creative instrument we are and together we explore how this plays out when we merge with one and another, embarking in a powerful ensemble. During this attunement we open up to receive insights that can empower us to play in a natural life that harmonises everything we encounter.

by Karin Roozemond
During the Ecstatic Intensive I (Karin Roozemond) will give a workshop about the fluids in the body. The greater your body awareness, the more you can move freely and lightly. Liquids in the body make your movements flexible and connected in dance. Moving becomes effortless! The liquids that we are going to delve into are: blood, joint fluid, lymph, cerebral fluid and cellular fluid. Each of the liquids has its own atmosphere, rhythm and gives its own movement pattern. Come experiment, deepen and discover new movements.
