Textual play on the theme of the clitoris

The clitoris... such an enigma for so much emotion!

"The Robert dictionary offers twelve immediate synonyms for penis, while it offers only four for vulva, seven for testicle and none for clitoris. Along the same lines, the verbs suggested by that same dictionary to designate sexual penetration are legion. On the other hand, if you want to describe a caress, you're going to need a fair share of lexical imagination." (Cy Jung, 2001)

How can you enjoy what isn't named? How can you write about what doesn't exist?
For two days, Cineffable's festival-goers will be asked to reveal the names they give their clitoris.
Those who participate in our textual play date will then be able to take hold of that abundance of clitorises (ooh! ah! aaah!) in order to... write? Tempted? Then come!

Initiation to Queer Tango

An initiation to Argentine Tango that sets us free of traditional roles. Each participant will be able to experience guiding her partner and being guided herself. Discover the world of this little known and often fantasized dance this is actually more intimate and equitable than we imagine when we can move from leader to follower. Explore the tango as a dialogue between two people in which the common language is the body.

No experience in dance is necessary; only an open mind and the willingness to discover.
Come alone or with a partner.

This workshop echos the art exhibition Intimate Explorations. CÚline Tiberghien is one of the actresses in the short film Tango directed by Marie Docher.

Tantra for women with Sabine Sonnenschein

For the first time last year, Cineffable offered a unique initiation to tantra. Based on the success of this workshop, this year we are repeating it for those who were not able to participate and adding a second workshop for those who want to continue their exploration.

Tantra is an attitude towards life including practical exercises of breathing, sensing, opening, supporting the flow of energy inside you. It is a different approach to yourself and others, to sexuality and perception, to interaction. The powerful tantric exercises increase sexual energy and move it consciously throughout the body. They allow you to gain knowledge of yourself and others making it easier to make contact and transcend fears of intimacy, as well as gain self-confidence. These practices increase your ability to listen as well as your compassion and respons-ability.
