Re-examining Contact Essentials
This intensive workshop invites participants to reconsider our perception of what Contact Improvisation (CI) essentials are as we focus on some specific/fundamental facets of CI such as: sensation, space, time and our relationships with the other dancers. Perceptual skills involving the somatosensory systems such as "seeing" through the skin and "tasting" sensations will be examined and integrated into essential physical abilities such as: moving while supporting weight (1%-100%), falling and landing safely from any level, constantly modulating the tone of one’s body, being omni-directionally responsive and emotionally clear and present. Release techniques, hands-on work as well as numerous scores for dancing, warming down and discussions will be included.
For adults of all ages with curious bodies, open minds and a desire to dance.
