Contact improvisation: weekly training
This class is for movers with at least basic experience in CI. We will revisit the core principles of CI and deepen our understanding of them, working towards an available body and mind. We will research, move and work individually as well as with partners. We'll work on opening the body with awareness, so we can meet our partner in dance from a deep understanding of our own body.
Every session will end with half an hour jamming to integrate the information into dancing.
This course is meant to explore both the small movements in our body as the big movement of our bodies washing the space. We will train in being honest in our movement so that we can feel an available and intelligent body, ready to meet other bodies and weight.
We actively learn about supporting, surprising, directing and playing with movement. About arriving to momentum and a playful encounter. About entering a state of readiness to respons to inner and outer impulses.
The result is a more intelligent body, empowered to honestly initiate and respond. Flying, speed and flow: all this will be a natural development for us, as long as we are aware of the deepest movement in the body.
Ready for a fascinating journey?
Wear clothes in which you can move easy. Bring light knee pads and a bottle of water.
This course will be in English.
