Cypher, 0


Fouad Nafili | Production : Great Investment (in collaboration with Hoofdstedelijke Kunstacademie van Brussel)

This workshop by dancer and choreographer Fouad Nafili aims to explore a fundamental element of collective dancing known as the ‘cypher.’ Deeply rooted in various African dance traditions and urban practices, the cypher involves forming a circle to facilitate the sharing of dance. In this focused session, we will break down the technical aspects of the cypher and its components. Through exercises, puzzles, and games, we aim to develop tools for generating movement vocabulary. Working with grooves, floor work, and improvisation tasks, we will progress to collective cyphering.
