"Space activation is a dance Experiment , hence the lab! The movement games are initiated by a series of inquiries that you are invited to answer in your body. Each participant shapes the total experience. There is a gentle and Fun warm-up. Some parts of the lab will be solo, and other parts with a partner or a small group. As the facilitator, I have a "map" in mind, but as Collaborators we all inform the process." - "All movers welcome! Everybody has a Dancing body!" Questions?

Paat (2013, 77 min), by Amir Toodehroosta – After his owner dies, a dog wanders alone in Tehran, following people and their stories. (In Farsi with English subtitles). "A dog, a big city, three women, a few days... A new style of Iranian film by an up-and-coming 31-year-old director, portraying the light and shadows of human society through a dog’s eyes. A man who has a problem with his wife takes care of a dog called PAAT in a city where having a dog is illegal. The man’s wife decides to kill him, and PAAT runs away from their house and into the big city." After the screening, there will be a Q&A discussion with Deirdre Evans-Pritchard, Executive Director of DC Independent Film Festival.
