Martial Contact – the pathway of the dancer: 13.10

In this workshop we will explore the similarities and elements that have diffused into the world of contact from the soft martial art traditions of Aikido and Judo.

Aikido has a very strong influence over the developing of Contact Improvisation, the idea of a partner rather than an enemy is always apparent in both traditions.

In the workshop we will explore pathways that lead not to the floor but rather in space and upward rather than downwards to the ground.

We will also explore some technique from Judo and lifting our partner with our center with or without our hands.

This workshop is a part of a day workshop that consist of many different martial arts and there relevance to the world of Contact Improvisation.
