Andrew de Lotbinière HarwoodContact Improvisation - Being Ready
An intermediate course in Contact Improvisation
Because of the sophisticated nature of this workshop, this intensive is for those with a solid grasp of Contact fundamentals with at least three years of continuous ongoing practice. Being completely attentive and always prepared on all levels, will enable us to go beyond thinking our way through the dance, and help us be attuned to what is actually taking place. This total presence allows us to be freed of the mental chatter, planning ahead, and judgment, which so often override the body’s ability to make appropriate split second choices. In this way the improvisations can be entirely physical, playful, heartfelt, surprising and enjoyable. Explored themes will include: tumbling, flying, use of variable speeds, use of direct action and initiation, resistance, disappearance, subtle ways of moving weight, flowing through unfamiliar circumstances, extending our personal range of movement, and integrating our imagination.
This intensive is for those with a solid grasp of Contact Improvisation fundamentals with at least three years of continuous ongoing practice.
