CounterPlay, hét festival van playfulness.

Over exact een maand is het weer zover: CounterPlay, een festival met play als centraal thema. Het is reeds de vierde editie van dit festival en ik ken er geen één zoals dit!

Elk jaar trekken meer dan 200 speelvogels van heel de wereld richtig Aarhus (Denemarken) om zichzelf uit te leven, elkaar te inspireren, op adem te komen, het kind in zichzelf los te laten en vooral om hun neus te volgen. Drie dagen lang kan je het thema play verkennen, proeven en uitproberen in een aanbod van allerlei speelse workshops en activiteiten.

Zelf zal ik er dit jaar opnieuw een workshop van dans & beweging aanbieden om deelnemers hun eigen playfulness te laten ontdekken via hun lichaam.

Ik ben blij dat ik dit jaar mag fungeren als één van de ambassadeurs van Counterplay. Hieronder een kort interview dat onlangs werd gepubliceerd op de Counterplay website.

Wie weet tot in Denemarken? 😊

Our next CounterPlay ambassador is our playfully dancing friend from Move2Create in Belgium, Stephan Marchant:

Q1: What have you experienced at CounterPlay that has inspired you?
Counterplay is thé place to be for playful people who are curious to new insights, new people and new adventures. It offers a space to play, to relax, to learn, to meet, to exist, to breathe, to get inspired, ... (I could go on like this for a while). It’s a journey, on both a personal level and on the level of the play community. Counterplay = a way to transform the I into WE. That inspires me each time I join this crazy festival and that's why it becomes so addictive. :-)

Q2: What is your motivation for coming back this year?
2017 will be my third time Counterplay. On the one hand I look forward to offer a playful workshop of dance & movement again. What I love is that each participant of Counterplay is so into play and that made this session last year very energizing. That's why I decided to offer this year a new one. On the other hand I just come to enjoy myself as well as a participant, to treat myself in a way. I look forward to just follow my nose during those three days and let everything come as it comes. I think that's the most rewarding gift.

Q3: Which activities in the program are you looking forward to at CounterPlay ‘17?
In general I mainly like the playful atmosphere at Counterplay, so I don't want to overschedule my stay at the festival. Nevertheless I look forward to experiential workshops that activate my body instead of my mind. Play has the power to bring people's attention to the now & to bring the playful spirit alive in ourselves. I'm quite sure I will experience that again at this edition.
