Welcoming & Opening Ritual with Kai Ehrhardt & Daan van Kampenhout
During most of the previous festivals in the past it has been a tradition to start each day with a welcoming by Kai and an opening Ritual by Daan. This time we will have a big global welcoming moment for the whole 5-day festival.
Kai is the founder and curator of the Stretch Festival. Amongst many other things, one of Daan's signature events at Stretch has been his Queer Ancestor Ritual & the Opening Ceremony

Juicy Connections with Jorge Rodolfo De Hoyos Jr
A fun dance class focusing on lubricating those joints to get ourselves limber, open and activated! Ask yourself: What are physical elements you notice when having enjoyable, deeper and expansive connections? …think of joints in your body, a good time spent with a friend, great sex, a soulful walk, a creative endeavor... No dance experience is necessary, beyond maybe having enjoyed dancing by yourself naked or in your undies : )
Jorge De Hoyos is a freelance dancer, performer and choreographer from California and based in Berlin since 2012. He studied Cultural Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz and recently got an MA in Solo/ Dance/ Authorship from the Universität der Künste in Berlin. Currently, he’s interested in geeking out on and integrating Permaculture ethics and principles into all aspects of his life and creative endeavors.
