the learning of unlearning
Humans like all animals are playful by nature. Play is a process most conducive to improve motor skills, in the acquirement of new abilities, and underlies all creative responses. Play-Fight is an open invitation to retrieve a bodily intelligence often compromised as we move towards adulthood. Our practice will be developed through improvisational partner work embedded in principles of martial arts, such as Capoeira and Russian Systema, and Contact Improvisation. Mutual trust will pave our way to enter into zones wherein confrontational situations will be safely permeated by a collaborative group mind-set. Partners are not to be confronted but useful to show our own limitations and possibilities. Ultimately Play-Fight is an invigorating self-knowledge road orchestrated by utter sensitivity of body-feelings, which only become possible in each encounter. Meet the other, find yourself and let your body teach you.
