The soft edges of Contact Improvisation – 19-20.11.2016

The meeting point of touch, contact, and sensuality in DANCE

happines-is-real-13In this 2 day workshop we will explore the edges/borders of Contact Improvisation, the psychological effects of movement and touch, motion into emotion, and emotion into motion.

Contact Improvisation is said to be the exploration of physics, the physicality of the forces that guide us through the dance, however in the meeting point of two bodies much more information is being transmitted – emotions, wants, wills, state of mind and many more things and ideas to be explored and experienced.
In this workshop we will learn to trust ourselves and our partners and from that point of contact dance together searching and discovering our edges, softening them and making our borders wider.

The workshop comprises of 2 full days, you can join one day, however it is advised to join both of them and a priority will be given to people who wish to attend to both of them.
