Start with Contact Improvisation!
An explorative introduction and continuation of Contact Improvisation
A Dialogue between two or more dancers
Bodies moving around a constantly shifting contact point
Perception of the diversity of dancing impulses
Trusting own movements and movements of others
In this workshop we will find time to focus on diving into the world of Contact Improvisation.
We will work on basic elements of Contact Improvisation on all spatial levels, feel the weight of the own body, play with it and relate it to our partners. We practice skills as: moving into the floor, flying, being lifted, supporting and experience the continuity of dance in a duet. Dynamic and a mutual rhythm rise through this contact bringing the own movements to dance. This enhances balance between your and your partners’ impulses.
Unexpectedly we will throw ourselves into moving dialogues and talks about all sorts of possible and impossible topics, which will emerge: All of a sudden. Hasty. Nothing is impossible. The nothing is possible. Tentative. Patient.
How does my body want to move?
Which rhythms appear in the dance with my partner?
How do other movements and bodies inspire me?
