Luis Garay led a workshop with the campers from June 14 to 18. He invites the public to a presentation of this work.

Through choreographic systems and explorations on exercise, task and labour, Luis Garay dives into environments that could challenge ideas of productivity, time and presence. He often works with ecstatic bodies, obsessed with GIFS, machines and mechanisms. Nowadays, he gravitates towards ideas of shared imagination and the inhuman: passivity and receptivity as no-power. He is interested in habit and repetition, iteration and alienation. He recently presented his work at ARCOmadrid, Walker Art Center, Malta Festival Poznań, Centre Pompidou Metz, Montpellier Danse, ROHM Theatre Kyoto, GAM, Panorama Festival Brazil, among others. In Buenos
Aires he runs the San Martin Theatre Laboratory of Action, an experimental studies program for performative creators. He is currently completing a Master of performance studies at the University of Giessen in Germany.
