Are you ready to get grounded and available, a fully present multi way communicator? Are you ready to focus on the “or more” part of statement describing CI as an improvised form of movement based on real time communication and point of physical contact between two people or more?
In today’s class together we are being guided to explore THE INCLUSIVENESS in Contact Improvisation. Through the popular formats of dance engagements like Tried and Truth, Round Robin and Grazing (Nancy Stark Smith) we will flow in and out of physical and sensory (fear, excitement) information we create with our bodies and we’ll continue exercise to listen to that what is already there in the “global dancing village”.
Children of all ages (0-70), dancers with physical challenges, dancers of non-contact improvisation forms and newcomers are welcome.
