ECSTATIC PRANCE - Workshop - PIFF 2021

— Bricks

· Dance however you like
 · Be brave, be silly 
· Co-create a judgment-free space
price: Headfirst Tickets


Time: 18:00-19:30
Duration: 90 minutes

Ecstatic Prance is about free movement and playful moments of closeness. Behind our light-hearted idea is the simple act of dancing freely and the sense of belonging amongst the like-minded. Expect an eclectic mix of bangers from diva-evoking disco to spacey electronics. We explore contrasting rhythms to tickle our imagination for what our bodies can do. After a guided warm-up, join us on the 60-minute journey of freestyle dance and self-discovery. You’re welcome to stay for a bowl of soup and chatter at the end. It’s okay to feel nervous, especially if you come alone. Dancing freely around others is a courageous act. Yet we come together to overcome our fears. Dress code: wear whatever you like but fancy dress makes us happy

How we vibe:

· Dance however you like

· Be brave, be silly

· Co-create a judgment-free space

· Let loose without drugs or booze

· Respect other people’s no-no’s

All tickets to both our physical and online screenings are available through Headfirst via our website, or at the Bricks Bristol Box Office during the film festival. Tickets for most events are on a sliding scale of £2, £4, £6 or £8. Choose what to pay based on your circumstances. We ask that you be honest with yourself about your financial situation. This allows us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it most and makes PIFF affordable to more people alongside sustaining the festival and supporting queer filmmakers. If you have any questions about what you should pay, please get in touch via info@palacefilmfest.org or ask one of our volunteers on the day.
