Title of the LAB: Body politics, limits, concent, sexuality, support lab 

As a result of the discussions in this lab, a support group came together and created this document for the participants of the Contact Festival Freiburg:



 During our inquiries of dance and living together this week, we expect to have pleasurable, joyful times. However our practice can sometimes be challenging and risky. We might get distressed and could feel hurt physically, emotionally, or sexually. This year we have a team of teachers who wish to bring awareness to and support such issues during the festival — in and outside of the dance floor.

 So, at any moment, if you feel discomfort during an interaction

or if you feel that your boundaries got crossed and you were not able to address it or if you were/are confused;

or if you feel you might have crossed someones boundaries and did not know what to do about it

you are invited to approach a member of this team and ask for support to process.

Whatever you share will be handled with care and will stay as confidential as you wish.

The names and pictures of the team of teachers are here on the Bulletin Board.

If you would like to join the team please let Defne know, so that your name and picture can be placed here.
