Liveable Futures and Earth Liberation

Techniques of the body and the reversal of extinction


  1. 14 to 18  June – Inscriptions till 1st June
  2. 26 to 30  July – Inscriptions till 5th July
  3. 7 to 11 August – Inscriptions till 20th July
  4. 25 to 30  September  Inscriptions till 5 September – this one coincides with the partner meeting of the Bodynet-Khorós project thus with less available places. Members of K.Danse and the University of the Aegean will participate in this session and the methodologies of Jean-Marc Matos and the “Immortelle(s)” project will also be shared.

In rural SPAIN: in Casa de la Libertad, in a small village of Salamanca two hours away from Madrid and 40 min. from Salamanca. There is train or bus to Peñaranda de Bracamonte, which is 13km away.

At the METAHUMAN LAB we explore we ways of being in the world that may help undo the planetary catastrophe that human dominion has created over the past 10 millennia. Challenging ruthlessly all forms of oppression, non-human and human, and their underlying concepts (of species, gender, race, ability, etc.) we confront the fact that it is the totality of forms of sedentary living and its related overpopulation emerging since the rise of farming that have created the extinction cycle that drags us along all other species.

The lab onto-hacks our most deeply rooted Human Supremacist assumptions and proposes experiential practices and techniques for rediscovering a lost moving-sensing body, which is the only means to undo our toxic ways of living and regain a symbiotic relation to the Earth and its 8,7 million species. From movements exercises based on proprioception, through flexinamic structures and interactive projections, to gathering food and collaborating with animal sanctuaries, this fully vegan event wants to resonate with the significant queer-animalist-ecologist-migrant-diverse community in Skala Eressou, for transforming our ways of living and regaining the dance of life.

The Original Affluent Society theory stemming from the 1960 in anthropology tells us that gatherers hunters lived and live better than sedentary cultures, and for 99% of its history of around 300.000 we lived only like that and we were just one million population: never accumulating, with egalitarianism and respect for other life forms and the environment, moving with the earth and its flows. All modes of oppression have appeared with accumulation and our devastating occupation of the earth with farming, agriculture and cities. But the Lab, building upon Del Val’s movement philosophy suggests that it is the gradual loss of movement in the Sapiens that lies in the roots of the problem. Regaining the moving body is key.


  • Morning:
  • Lunch: Cooking Vegan
  • Afernoon:
    • Metawalks: disaligned wanderings where we:
      1. non-verbally explore environments and their affordances and textures, through multisensory integration and kinesthetic, proprioceptive variation (micro-dancing, small movements, torsions, touching, lying, crawling, smelling, hearing…)
      2. gather food, wild plants
      3. consider ways of inhabiting the ecosystem without urbanisation, looking for organic materials for building temporary “nests”, dynamic architectures, learning from animals and plants,
      4. walk (preferably barefoot) outside of human paths and disaligning bipedal posture
    • Play with Metabody techniques,  in two modes: Khorós (physical) and Bodynet (online):
      • Disalignmentsmovement techniques based on proprioception and microperceptions.
      • Flexinamicsphysical flexible and dynamic architecture modules as body extensions.
      • Amorphogenesisnon representational VR and amorphous digital intra-active environments.
      • Microsexescameras on the skin and electronically processed voice for a body without anatomy.
    • Collective performance: new version of EXTINCTION
  • Ongoing: exploration of  more-than human, non-verbal, disaligned ways of togetherness.

Worshops imparted by the non-binary metahuman philosopher-artist-activist Jaym* del Val sharing ideas and techniques developed over 20 years and presented in over 30 countries.
