Andrew de Lotbinière HarwoodContact Improvisation
aware but not self-conscious
This is a workshop open to students with at least a year of solid contact experience. The role of perception, sensation, expression and imagination will be examined. We will challenge the mind's beliefs about space and time and experience the dramatic effects on our bodies and movements. Finding a sense of timelessness in our dancing – a state of consciousness that is aware but not self-conscious. Dancers will be encouraged to explore the outer edge of their physical limits while still attending to the world of sensation, imagination and inspiration.
Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood is one of North America’s foremost improvisers. He has spent most of the past twenty eight years investigating the art of dance and improvisation as a performance form. Harwood has danced with the companies of Marie Chouinard, Jean-Pierre Perreault and Jo Lechay and performed with Steve Paxton, Nancy Stark Smith, Lisa Nelson and Randy Warshaw among many others.
