Up to 4 scholarships are made available to cover lodging during the workshop period covering nights from June 3 to June 11 inclusive.

Alphabet is a project to find and generate new communities through the construction of new spaces, physical and of thought. It is a popularizing action that we like to call a conversation, a piece of an imaginary puzzle proposed as a first approach to building a cultural fabric that emphasizes choreographic art as a connector of knowledge and interactions.
"One example I often bring up is the enchantment that stargazing poses. I am not a physicist, I cannot decipher the exact reason why the sky is so composed and so in motion, yet I read it for its wonder, for its exactness. This is how I wish to read choreography, which though mysterious becomes apparent for its reasons that reside in a severe device, capable of generating spaces."
