... for everything you brought to this crazy and blessed experiment - ONE LOVE

7th-17th JUNE 2018

Midsummer, 2018. Vauxhall, London.
Rhythm Village is be a community festival of movement and creative celebration, set in St Peter's Church and other Vauxhall venues. You are invited to come and move - to dance, to enjoy music, food and art. To hang out, drink tea, meet new people. We will dance, we will probably laugh, we might cry and hopefully we will learn something about ourselves and what it means to be in a human body and in urban community

All Are Welcome!

Rhythm Village a community festival of movement and creative celebration 7th-17th June 2018 Vauxhall, London All Welcome

The festival is a dancingTao production, connected with an Erasmus project on social inclusion that we've been leading. Our partners from Budapest, Rome and Berlin will join us - and we’re really happy to be bringing this new initiative to both the existing community of dancers, the local Vauxhall community and people who may not previously have been able to access conscious dance spaces. It's an experiment. We'll see what happens!

DancingTao is a CIC (Community Interest Company) dedicated to bringing movement practice into service of growth and positive change for individuals, communities and the world field.

Using the maps of 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine Open Floor and other practices, we connect and transform through music and movement. 

All events grounded in an intention of Embodiment, Awareness & Respect. All movement spaces are Drug & Alcohol Free.

A word about costs:
Open events are ticketed on a sliding scale of cost according to means.
Events specific to particular communities or groups are by suggested donation.
Ticket revenues and a grant from Erasmus+ will subsidise the running of the lower-resourced community events.
To be completely honest, we're on a shoe-string, so extra donations welcome!
