We have not yet given up on the idea that it is possible to dance with you in the end of August !! But of course, given the restrictions, we imagine making some changes for this year:
– Will artists from abroad be able to come ?? … Maybe not.. so that we are currently reviewing the program to focus on local artists.
– Will we be allowed to open the Fif or not? We do not have the answer to this question right now, so that we will continue the organization while bearing in mind that possibly we have to cancel. We would like keep the possibility to cancel up to 2 weeks before the FIF (to be negotiated with the location, the artists, and you!) And of course, reimburse you if that is the case.
Depending on the directives of June 2, we will launch registrations or not on the following days.
The FIF is back in 2020!
The FIF, the Forro Impro Festival, that makes meet the worlds of forro and contact improvisation is back in 2020. The FIF will take place on the weekend between the 28th and 30th of August 2020 next to the Vassivière lake in the Creuse department. We are looking forward to welcome you at 2pm on Friday until the end of the festival at 5pm on Sunday.
And as we’d never change a winning team, we will organize a little pre-party thursday night (27th of August), at l’Atelier in Royère de Vassivière so that you can bust a move or two, mingle with the locals and share the our passion for dancing with them…
Come and join us for three days of complete immersion in a Brazilian culture, hot rhythms and happiness guaranteed.
The FIF ? What’s that ?
The Forro Impro Festival means 3 days of:
DANCE WORKSHOPS on Forro, contact improvisation and traditional dances. Parties and COLORFUL BALLS until the morning comes, to LIFE MUSIC from passionate musicians. BRAZILIAN MUSIC workshops by the musicians you’ve seen on stage. A splendid FESTIVAL DINNER and meals with local, organic foods to get a taste of Brazil in France. The NATURE of the Creuse department with the Vassivière LAKE and the camping under the old oak trees at the plateaux limousins. SHARED MOMENTS of music, meals and much more with fellow dancers, musicians, volunteers, cooks and sheep in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
To bring everyone together and share the whole experience, the festival comes at a flat rate including, workshops, food, parties and overnight stay.
And this is what it looked like last year:
