About R.I.T.M.O.

R.I.T.M.O. is a holistic approach to rhythm, created and envisioned by Colombian percussionist Túpac Mantilla, based on the use of the body as our main instrument, with the intention to enter rhythmic flow through contents around body percussion and body rhythm and to open a space that develops the individual creativity as part of a holistic experience.

R.I.T.M.O. uses flow to learn complex patterns and to create longtime memory and complex movement integration. It trains coordination and motor skills through gradual multilayered exercises that combine different rhythmic levels in the feet, hands and the voice at the same time. It invites to explore movement through the perspective of rhythm and to experience a wide range from basic to complex rhythmic structures and polyrhythms.

 

Learn tools from Túpac’s unique body percussion system (like Scales, Power Rhythms, Dun-tas and Circulines), get to know concepts, games and settings that give room for creativity and improvisation and offer powerful tools for group formation and group synchronization, as you interact in a collective sharing context and have a lot of fun.

About the RETREAT

The activities during the Retreat are organized in a way that you can customize your own personal experience based on your particular interests. Choose from different practice sets that focus on body awareness, grounding, rhythmic meditations, body percussion technique and tools, grooves, polyrhythms, voice and movement journeys, brain activation, as well as discussions and talks around the scientific research and pedagogic methodology that supports the R.I.T.M.O. process. Special music, dance, drumming and open gatherings will take place in the evenings and throughout the course.

 

The Retreat offers a personal space to focus and reconnect with your inner rhythm and the intelligence of your body and invites you to develop and bring forward your own creative voice.

 

The main language of the course will be English. Translation into German will be provided whenever necessary.
