FRANCE 2019

 

Experiment Intrinsic France 02

01 – 05 AUGUST 2019

Following a profound and revitalising first edition in France 2017, Experiment Intrinsic aims to continue and expand the project further.

INTRINSIC France places to visit around Le Parc de Josephine Baker

Experiment Intrinsic

Our 4-day immersive gathering combines a mix of ambient and experimental music, visual mapping, yoga, meditation and workshops. 

With an intimate capacity of just 400 people, the festival is located in the heart of the Dordogne, set in the stunning surroundings of Le Parc de Joséphine Baker, France.

By providing a welcoming space, high-quality sound system, and carefully curated bookings, our intention remains to bring together like-minded people for a weekend away from civilisation and everyday life.

Le Parc de Josephine Baker

A park where world peace conferences were organised, an open space that children could play, and a place dedicated to the celebration of music, dance, theatre and film. 

Designed by Joséphine Baker in the 1970s and based on the experiences that marked her life as a woman and artist, today, the Park is once again an institution devoted to culture, the arts, education and actions for the benefit of fraternity and ecology.

The Park lies at the Dordogne river, complemented with a Music Hall, Cuban Theatre, a swimming pool, bar and restaurant.

“There is only one race, the human race” – Josephine Baker

Address:
Le Parc de Joséphine Baker, – Sous les Milandes, 24250 Castelnaud-la-Chapelle

Mind and Body

“There is the river, the trees, the sounds, this music you hear in every corner, this positive vibration of the people around. Together, it creates the inner healer within us.”

The seamless integration between sound and yogic practice is at the core of the Intrinsic philosophy. Also known as ‘Nada Brahma’, it represents the unity between frequency, movement, and awareness.

Our France edition allows us to fully explore this aspect in a warm and open environment at Le Parc de Joséphine Baker.

Curated by Marta, the yoga and workshops programme features a range of activities including Hatha yoga, Vinyasa flow yoga, Kundalini yoga, Rocket yoga, Meditation, Cacao ceremonies, Sound healing, Thai massage and more.

Preparing the mind and the body begins to open up possibilities within, and with the movement, the breath, and the awareness, one can truly relax.
We invite you to join us going deeper into this space.

Kundalini and meditation sessions will take place in the mornings, vinyasa flow and meditation in the evenings, and workshops happening throughout the day.
Classes and workshops are available to all ticket holders free of charge.

We cater to all levels and warmly encourage newcomers to have a taste of what is on offer, as well as welcome experienced individuals to receive more advanced guidance. Opportunities for one-to-one sessions throughout the weekend will also be available.

2019

Whilst Experiment Intrinsic 2017’s festival was without a doubt our greatest achievement to date, the possibility to continue lies in a delicate balance.

As some may or may not be aware, the viability of running a festival for a capacity of under 500 people leaves organisers without a possibility of making profit in the long term. In this way, Experiment Intrinsic can be seen as a non-profit project that can only be sustained by filling the capacity of the site.

For this reason it is crucial to register your interest with us.

Having said this we’re still driven to keep the intimacy and quality of the festival and continue investing our energy into creating a special experience for all.

Support

For the next year we are introducing an advanced tickets sale system.
This is simply a way of raising the necessary funds needed to put on the event. 

As we mentioned previously, please note that festival tickets are now £200.
£200 festival tickets will include a four-day pass, access to all workshops and free site camping ground.

In order to proceed with logistics and confirm the line-up we are aiming to secure 300 places with a deposit system of £100 by end of February 2019, remaining payment of £100 should be completed by end of April.

To be completely transparent – if this target isn’t reached the festival will not happen, and all deposits will be refunded (minus £5 booking fee).

Providing we have enough people to continue with the festival, remaining tickets may still be available after February 31st.

You can help support the project also by spreading the word and introducing your closest friends to the festival.

Accommodation

Just a 2 minute walk from Le Parc de Josephine Baker, the camping site is available to use free of charge.

For those wishing to travel light there will be a limited number of spacious and furnished bell tents. These will be available to book on our website in April.
5 people / 5m – £600 or 4 people / 4m – £500

There is also a good selection of private accommodation in the local area.
When booking make sure you have free cancellation charge included in case your plans change.

Please be warned that August is a busy period for the local region and we advise those making external accommodation arrangements to do so early in advance.

However we recommend arriving on Thursday to get the full intrinsic experience.
We suggest those flying to book their flights next year once we have confirmed everything.

Intention

For 2019 we hope to develop the concept further, with a focus on Experiment Intrinsic resident artists, as well as welcoming new additions to the experience.

We are grateful to have an incredible location, a passionate team, and a determination to deliver another memorable weekend.

We cannot wait to create this space again together and explore its possibilities.
