Bettina in Barcelona: International Dance Exchange RECAP

Bettina enjoyed four days of inspiration the Barcelona Dance International Dance Exchange.

The Barcelona International Dance Exchange (BIDE) is an organization that facilitates international artistic exchanges and networking. Last year, Bettina participated in the BIDE's flagship event,the B>Meeting, and last month, she returned as a collaborator!

From June 26th to 30th, Bettina joined 70 dance artists from 20 different countries in artistic exploration. She was also able to present a project and facilitate a movement lab using the specific formula of the BIDE, the B>Lab. Her lab activity explored the subject of menopause, a topic that she has been researching for several years. Bettinae led participants through her process, called the moving subconscious. Beginning with guided meditations, this technique allows performers to work with memory and emotion to generate movement. The workshop allowed for exchanges surrounding the cultural significance and embodied experience of menopause, with the goal of destigmatizing this natural phase of life.
