Renowned contact improvisation teacher, writer, and editor Nancy Stark Smith calls this exercise "a Solo Mini Underscore".  You will need about 30 minutes of uninterrupted time as well as a notebook and writing device.  We would like you to share your SHARING/THANKSGIVING in a video response on youtube (see below).

  1.  You can choose to do this activity by listening to the mp3 or following the youtube video below
  2. HARVEST After you've completed the Solo Mini Underscore, please spend some time on the practice Nancy Stark Smith  calls "Harvest."  In her book, Caught Falling, she describes the harvest as"[A] time to reflect on your experience through writing, moving, drawing, and thinking--gleaning direct observations that can be shared with others...These are your gleanings, your field notes; not full summaries or interpretations.  They might just be fragments." (95)
  3. SHARING/THANKSGIVING Here's how Nancy defines this phase of the Underscore in Caught Falling: "This is a time to come together (often in a circle or group) to offer reflections, some "fruits" of the harvest.  Usually short remarks with little or no cross-talk discussion...  No need for big "summings" up, just a small bit of true observation from one's true experience is plenty."  (95)
  4. We are asking that you share your SHARING/THANKSGIVING as a short youtube video that you can embed in this discussion. You are also welcomed to post images or written responses. Click here for directions on recording video in youtube and embedding it in a discussion.
