"If anyone has lost touch with their body - or if you're intrigued by Biomechanics - I would nudge you towards IUGTE. Great week of physical lab and a top notch conference!"
Daisy Badger, UK
"I think that the structure itself of the workshop+conference let us create that atmosphere of friendship, inspiration, listening and trust, which allowed us to live a perfect mix of artistic sharing, personal contact and, above all, laughter. Smiles in our eyes made our energy travellin’ from one to the other to the air around us. It was wonderful and funny to live with people from all over the world and to find out how beautiful are our diversities and similarities, because, no matter where we come from or which our background is, we all are humans and we all are artists."
Marta Keller, Italy
"I found it to be such a rewarding and enriching experience in terms of what I took away from those ten days not only as inspiring artist, but also as a student who can use much of what I learned in application with my studies while I finish my degree."
