A fantastic opportunity to attend a Blindfolded Contact workshop with Gabriel Diamond –https://www.blindfoldedcontact.com/
Blindfolded Contact Dance is a slow and gentle experience— for both beginners and experienced dancers alike. The constraint of the blindfold invites dancers to explore other senses to find connection, expression, pleasure, and safety. These workshops take participants on a journey of somatic self-discovery and non-verbal consent via solo and group exercises before culminating in a freeform blindfolded jam. We will open with a short circle addressing boundaries and safety. Please arrive from 6:10pm and be ready to start at 6:30pm. This is closed container. Late arrivals will not be admitted and will not receive a refund.
Part of the core ethos of BFC is “the whole room is your partner.” That means setting aside your judgments, preferences, and biases and dancing with everyone in the space—including by yourself.
We have a high expectation of personal responsibility and respect regarding consent and boundaries. Learn more about us and read the code of conduct at http://www.blindfoldedcontact.com/
If you have a blindfold (or something that can be used as one), please bring it. Otherwise we will have some available.
Suitable for any level of CI experience.
