workshops

ENSIMISMADOS 2019 is the third edition of an international contemporary dance workshop under Jimmy Ortiz and Grei QuezAc’s lead that will celebrate dance in Costa Rica from September 2-22, 2019, through a hard training and movement research process with our guest dance teachers.

ENSIMISMADOS 2019 focuses on contemporary dancers; nevertheless, we encourage participation of people from any performing field like theater, circus, and performance art that can get advantage of the various movement tools for their own research; and at the same time the diversity of performing artist population will be enriched.

  1. The main workshops on weekdays:

    Flying low with David Zambrano (3weeks)
