Fighting Monkey Practice was founded by Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Frucek. They are both professionally involved in art, athletics and movement research.

Linda has a professional Gymnastics and Contemporary Dance background and has been invited to join most of the dance institutions across Europe and North America.

Which games do you play to stay young?

This workshop is an introduction to the qualities and ideas that we have developed over the last 15 years of our Fighting Monkey research. The workshop addresses dancers, movers, martial artists and people who are interested in human development. You will experience mainly “movement situations”, irregular training methods to provoke and increase the adaptive value of your behavioral traits and strategic planning. We will work on complex and most of the time improvised structures to improve your movement qualities and increase your creative variability. We will help you understand the underlying principles of human motion and how stress and pressure affects our perception, behavior and actions and how creatively adaptive you are in complex situations.

Foster improvisation, imagination and creativity.

The above are vital to problem solving.

Which is vital to adaptability, longevity and sustainability.

Play games.

Expose yourself to difficulties.

Price: €15
