Xplore is a three-day event on creative sexuality, BDSM, body work, performance and ritual.
Xplore offers more than 40 workshops, demonstrations, lectures and performances on different aspects and variations of sexuality
Xplore presents unusual individuals who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed amazing techniques and rituals on their way. These forms are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are spiritual quests or searches for borderline experiences. Most of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity and expansion beyond the traditional relationship of the couple. They represent a different sexual culture.They are art with body and soul.
Xplore will host presenters from all over the planet who will teach short workshops, giving insight into their special fields.
Xplore wishes to provide hints, ideas and images and to promote an intelligent, open-minded and playful approach to sex.
But most of all, xplore wishes to bring together those who think and love unconventionally. To share and to learn.
Xplore is an idea of the choreographer and conceptual artist Felix Ruckert and takes places annually in Berlin, Germany since 2004. The xplore concept of a playful fusion of art, body practices and sexuality proved to be extremely successful, which led to growing numbers of attendees over the last years. To keep the athmosphere of the Berlin Festival intimate we meanwhile limit the maximum number of participants there to 250 persons. To nevertheless provide more people access to the unique mix of workshops and presentations of the festival we decided to rather take the risk of exporting the xplore idea to other european countries.
Therefore a first Xplore will also take place in Barcelona this year, with a mix of international presenters and in collaboration with local individuals and groups.
This connection to the local scene is a very important aspect to us and we are very interested in contacts to persons who would like to communicate and transmit the xplore idea in their city and region. We are also looking for workshop propositions and ideas of local individuals, as well as for collaborators and helpers for the organization of the festival.
If you are interested or inspired, please contact us!!
2012 will also see Xplore happening in Rome/Italy and Vienna/Austria. The Xplore Sydney, directed by Dr. Peter Banki started in April 2011 will be continued this year as well.
