LIVE | Contact improvisation: weekly training - connection through fabrics
This is a LIVE course
When you register for a live course, you take into account that it might be cancelled (halfway) in case the corona measures don't allow us to come together at the moment of the sessions.
This class is for movers with a strong basis in CI. As we do every season, we will, again with new angels and perspectives, revisit the core principles of CI and deepen our understanding of them, working towards an available body and mind.
Inspired by the restrictions due to covid, we will research those principles through working with materials as extended body parts. Materials don’t lie and will learn us a lot about weight shift, core, gravity, balance and alignment.
We explore 3 core layers of CI: movement, improvisation/composition and touch (in this case from a distance, through fabrics). We explore both the small movements in our body and the big movement of our bodies washing the space.
We actively learn about supporting, surprising, directing and playing with movement. About arriving to momentum and a playful encounter. About being honest and 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. 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.
