Xplore Barcelona 2012

First xplore Barcelona

xplore is a three-day event on creative sexuality, BDSM, body work, performance and ritual. The festival offers more than 40 workshops, demonstrations, lectures and performances on different aspects and variations of sexuality. It presents unusual individuals who play with, work with, and explore the phenomenon of sexuality. Individuals who have developed amazing techniques and rituals on their way. These forms are as varied as sexuality itself. Some are therapeutic in nature, some emerge from aesthetic intentions, others are spiritual quests or searches for borderline experiences. Most of them just aim for pure pleasure. Their common ground is playfulness, communication, creativity and expansion beyond the traditional relationship of the couple. They represent a different sexual culture. They are art with body and soul. xplore will host presenters from all over the planet who will teach short workshops, giving insight into their special fields. The festival wishes to provide hints, ideas and images and to promote an intelligent, open-minded and playful approach to sex. But most of all, xplore wishes to bring together those who think and love unconventionally. To share and to learn.

xplore is an idea of the choreographer and conceptual artist Felix Ruckert and takes places annually in Berlin, Germany since 2004. The xplore concept of a playful fusion of art, body practices and sexuality proved to be extremely successful, which led to growing numbers of attendees over the last years. In the year 2012, we decided to take the risk of exporting the xplore idea to other european countries. Therefore a first xplore takes place in Barcelona/ Spain this year, with a mix of international presenters and in collaboration with local individuals and groups.

Welcome to our playground!
