Welcome

Heya

As you can notice from our header, we have the dates for 2018, The place is old familiar Kisakeskus and the time is 11th to 17th of February 2018 (Sunday to Saturday).

We are still in the middle of things but mroe info for the coming SOS should be here in beginning of October 2017


We haven’t decided the price yet, last year (2017) it was 360€ since the prices for the place are rising, probably we have to rise the price a little bit. Anyway, with the price, you will get:

  • Daily jams, both open and with specific focuses
  • Three intensives and separate daily classes to choose from plus additional activities. More details in Classes and Teachers page
  • Sauna (three evenings)
  • Sleeping in 2-4 person rooms with proper beds (linen included)
  • Good food, mainly vegetarian, also fish and meat
  • Possibility for winter outdoor activities such as cross country skiing (depending weather conditions), outdoor swimming, wondering around in the wintery woods

Manifesto

We are a diverse, living and changing group of friends who want to dance contact improvisation. We are willing to try out new things and support different ways of seeing the form. We feel strongly as a group and trust in each other, even though many of us are spread around the World. We are aging together (getting 40 years or over) – and becoming a bit wiser, calmer and patient with it. Yet we are still going strong, keeping ourselves juicy by dancing, yoga, seducing, reducing, studying, teaching and by other secret potions, such as simply experiencing life. Some of us dance like animals, others sit passionately in circles and some prefer to boogie in other ways. Feeling nourished in our hearts, without financial benefit, we come together once a year to create the framework for this magnificent festival for YOU to experience with us!

Skiing on Skin is a festival in the middle of winter, in the middle of nowhere. This creates different possibilities to enjoy the local nature at its most unique. You may bath in the lake or ski, not only on skin but in the woods as well! The warmth of human contact combined with the Nordic solitude and simplicity creates the special character of the festival. So welcome to the wintery, (hopefully!) snowy Finland, and to the community known for its gentle men and strong women!

Let’s start from there: a touch, a roll, a contact. Falling gently, flying up… skiing on skin.
