Arlequi is a farmhouse and dance studio near Girona in Spain. It hosts various residencies through each year and Julyen Hamilton has taught a ten-day dance technique and improvisation course there for over twenty years. I joined in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Hamilton has become a key teacher for me, and I have attended his and Billie Hanne’s Secret Teachings courses in Brussels, and hosted both Hanne and Hamilton in London in July 2015 with the support of Arts Council England, Middlesex University and Chisenhale Dance Space in the Space and Words for Dancers project.

Each year at Arlequi, Patrick Beelaert has taken photographs; exhibited in subsequent pages.
