and everyday life.

“We will concentrate on serenity, listening deeply to the dance that emerges from our interior, from our peers, and between the both. We will explore, from this expressive flow of the body, technical aspects of CI, keeping sensibility, freedom and humour at all times”.

7117 Maple Ave., Takoma Park, MD 20912 USA

Contact Improvisation will be the common ground to continue and deepen our skills to come into a physical and kinaesthetic dialogue with others. We will play with different scores for improvisation to challenge and sharpen our compositional and spatial awareness. Articulation and playfulness are two keywords for this workshop in which we will dance a lot for and with each other. Dances in which we can expect to be in physical contact at any moment and at the same time keeping an awareness of ones own direction in improvising. This workshop will provide a playground for those who are interested in exploring territories in which we use our creative potential in dances that are created in the here and now, the present moment of an improvisation.

$100 – $150
