“As true visionaries and artists these two always provide thought provoking and inspiring works of art. They’ve created some amazing bodies of work, that I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. I enjoy their process, unconventional style and their hard work and dedication is something to admire.

Pushing artists to really connect and explore movement is what they do best and is what you can look forward to at this intensive!”

Working with Gadfly is an opportunity to push the limits of physicality, challenge instincts and to learn to trust the development of the artistic voice. Apolonia and Ofilio encourage dancers to be creators. They enable artists to surpass the mental, physical and emotional places they have already visited to experience new, superior energies .
