This year’s xplore will always feature four parallel workshops.
This year’s program has a focus on physical awareness, emotional experiences and creative skills. We will try to make the sexpositive explore environment more subtle, deep and rich and to expand from the private to the public and political. Somatic and artistic practices, performances and happenings, reflections and experiences play a major role.
The academic-critical symposium will take place in a play space this time. more at: PLAY SPACES
Two new rooms are dedicated to costume & styling and for your expression in front of a camera. more at: PLAY SPACES
We also decided to produce a film documentary on xplore this year. Micha Stella has selected a very special crew to film and photograph xplore Berlin 2017.
Of course we accept, that not everyone is ready to come out. Therefore filming will be restricted to certain hours and certain spaces in order to protect and respect those, who don’t wish to appear in the film. These workshops are highlighted in PINK on the schedule.
For the others, those who have already revealed their faces to the world, and those who might hesitate but wish to do so – this is your chance to express yourself and support our festival and its values. More about the filmproject: XPLORE COMES OUT
IMPORTANT: Please read the notes at the end of this page carefully! We would also like to ask every participant to bring an own large (sauna) towel with as a pad! Thanks a lot!
The listed program is subject to change without special notice.
Unless otherwise specified, no workshops require nudity or fetish outfit. For most workshops loose fitting, comfortable clothes are appropriate.
All workshops are learner-centred and for every-body. Even though some workshops may be quite physical, sexual contact as such is in no way required to participate and enjoy.
As the event is designed for adults we must emphasise the importance of consideration and self responsibility. Therefore it is obvious that all interactions should be related to the basic principle of SAFE - SANE - CONSENSUAL and practised by Safer Sex. We will ban anyone immediately from the entire festival who offend against this rule, acts reckless or even gets molesting.
Please note: At some workshops it is asked to bring own material (blankets, towels, wash bowls, yoga mats, meditation pads or cushions etc.) - Please check on the respective workshop pages!
