This workshop organized by Piny in
partnership with the Geração com Futuro association aims to create time for the
body to exist, to move just for the pleasure of moving. To bring forward what
is at the back, to open eyes and be able to speak. To open a space where,
through movement and dance, we can stop the time of daily tasks and the weight
of responsibilities and just exist. A space dedicated to the women of Quinta do
Piny was born in Lisbon and has been
seriously dedicated to dance since studying Middle Eastern and Northern African
dances in 1999. She has traveled through several countries and frequented
institutions while continuing her studies. In 2006 she co-founded the female
Hip Hop crew ButterflieSoulflow and the collective Soulflow DJs. She teaches
nationally and internationally, in amateur, professional and social contexts.
She organizes fusion dance festivals, battles, jams, debates on urban dances
and also works as a performer. Piny doesn’t believe in
borders drawn on paper or anything that separates people, water and land.
