During Wilderness dance residencies The Swufus put themselves through the test of wilderness. They took a walk through the amazing wilderness places and now inspired by nature, they want to give a gift, to give the walk back. Take a Walk to Give it Back is a performative workshop and a sensory walk. It is based on dance improvisation practice, where participants will explore movement and body through the interaction among themselves and the environment.
The Swufus are Rūdolfs Baltiņš, Jānis Sniķeris, Kristīne Vismane and Uldis Sniķeris. They met as students at the Latvian Academy of Culture and have since then, in one way or the other, crossed paths. The Swufus was specifically formed to take part in Wilderness dance.

“Take a Walk to Give It Back” is a performative workshop and a sensory walk. It is based on the dance improvisation practice, where participants will explore movement and body through the interaction among themselves and environment. Maybe they will find the answer to the question, which The Swufus were looking for during the residency: “What are the things which affect our identity as expressed through movement.”
