Contact Improvisation – Nowhere Bound

Assisted by Sabine Parzer

Contact Improvisation requires a courageous willingness – but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will – those moments when we drop the reigns and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us.

Join good company for dancing and discovery. With games, some sweat, and the unique physicality of the Contact Body we will savour and rock the boundaries between states of allowing and mindful intention.

We will explore:
* Moving from a base of sensation
* Dancing with a shared central axis
* Seeking ease in going off balance
* Finding the spontaneous acrobatics of the form
* Spending more time in nuance, disorientation, and extended follow-through

This is an advanced level training for those with a strong grasp of Contact fundamentals.
