shy* play invites students with a close affinity to embodied experiences of shyness, introversion and/or neurodivergence to participate in a workshop dedicated to experiments in shy* sociality. Especially for this workshop, shy* play and its collaborators (ATD and AMFI students) have developed relational techniques emerging from the question: What are shy* characteristics that can serve as springboards to different sociality formations beyond extraversion?

For those who are interested, different shy* embodied encounters and interactions, with a variety of long fabrics, bodies, spaces and questions of all kinds, await. To ensure that shy* needs are accommodated, the workshop has a maximum capacity of 10 people. The same workshop will be held on two different days. One can sign up for either day until we reach maximum capacity.



shy* play is a new research platform initiated by Aster Arribas and Antje Nestel.

This project is a collaboration between DAS Research (Academy of Theatre and Dance) and AMFI (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) and is made possible by the Centre of Expertise for Creative Innovation (CoECI).

*shy is used here as a shorthand for shyness, introversion, and neurodivergence. The asterisk gestures a refusal to adhere to a final form of fixed categories.
