WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

– Deepen your investigation and understanding of Contact Improvisation –

In this three-day workshop we will cultivate our individual CONTACT BODY. You are invited to enter leisurely somatic research, dancing and discovery. With hands on work, games, the skills and thrills of the form, and the unique physicality of the CONTACT BODY we will savor and rock the boundaries between states of allowing and mindful intention. We will focus on the pelvic bowl to become more intimately rooted in our dance and being.

What does the CONTACT BODY look and feel like?

Some qualities:

* Pliant strength

* Supple and resilient

* Organized and released

* Limbs that move autonomously from one another

* Ability to see and move into the backspace

* A visceral understanding of the spiral

* Breath that is felt from the ground to the marrow

* An enhanced capacity for sensation and pleasure

* ... (your unique qualities ...)

Contact Improvisation requires a courageous willingness – but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will – those moments when we drop the reigns and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us.

We will explore:

* Moving from a base of sensation

* Dancing with a shared central axis

* Seeking ease in going off balance

* Finding the spontaneous acrobatics of the form

* Spending more time in nuance, disorientation, and extended follow-through

* A greater capacity for sensation, risk, and pleasure

“My greatest sense of accomplishment comes from seeing students increase their capacity for sensation and risk—seeing them dance less with their “ideal” and more with their partner—and the profound gratification of introducing contact improvisation to those who then realize they have found the dance form they were seeking all their lives. I attempt to teach and model that the beauty and reach of our questions, in the end, determine the beauty and reach of our lives.”
