Equilibra: hula hoop and buugeng workshops

Visitors can acquire the art of hula hooping from Lucero, a female member of the Peruvian-Brazilian company Equilibra. In the workshop, you can strengthen the muscles of your body in a playful way, but the real goal is to achieve a state of flow through contact and movements with the hoop. The male member of the troupe, Gustavo, teaches object manipulation techniques with an unusual tool, the buugeng, whereby you can create beautiful patterns and dynamic geometric shapes. The name Buugeng is composed of the Japanese words Buu = martial arts and geng = illusion. By moving the tool, you can create kaleidoscopic visual effects which are then combined with dance and martial arts movements.
