Class Description

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a week-long lab with internationally known teachers Joerg Hassman & Jaqui Wan, working on how to combine Contact Improvisation principles with Acroyoga. In this class I’d like to share an exercise where acro-base & flyer work with eyes closed and one or two active supporters to find ways to improvise freely with positions for taking weight that aren’t often used in CI. I’m interested to see how these possibilities can get taken into the jam afterwards.

Jenny Moy: What I love about Contact Improvisation is that there’s no syllabus, no standard way to learn, no qualified teachers. The lab format celebrates that – dancers coming together to share, experiment and review: all teachers, all learners. London currently has a weekly labbing group, exploring themes like mixing Contact with Authentic movement or Acroyoga. I’d like to make a link between the London lab and Bristol: sharing some of our ideas and exercises and taking back more questions and discoveries.
