“Foundations to Flying”

In this 7 day event we will explore the foundations to flying with vipassana meditation, tai chi, aikido and other skill building exercises to get us comfortable with being disoriented. ‘Tension masks sensation,’ is a concept explored through three meditation times per day. With the alleviation of tension, a greater awareness of sensation is accessed. With this awareness we are more able to listen and respond to our partner.
Pathways to and from the floor are explored using effortless, spiral movements with the option of going up if you choose and feel safe, never out of control. Lifts and aerials are organic and happen when both partners feel it.

Gite de Faragous, Camarés, Aveyron , France

We invite you to develop and nourish your dance in a full 5 days long Residential Intensive Workshop of Contact + Improvisation in the wonderful location of FARAGOUS, close to Camarés, France. A beautiful place situated between red earth fields and mountains.

E N T R ( E ) S P A C I O S

This workshop of CONTACT + IMPROVISATION proposes a time of investigation and dance in the intimacy of a studio, as well as the exploration of the environment, outdoors. A proposal to deepen your experience of CI as you are confronted to the visual, sound, architectural and sensorial impressions, to observe your ability to remain open for the richness of internal and external drives. The integration of both experiences will support you accessing a fully embodied dance.

The Ws will be taught in English, French, Spanish, depending the need of the participants.

programma
ore 19,00 – degustazione piatti arabi
ore 21,00 – performance di danza CON TE/SENZA TE ispirata alla vicenda di Rachel Corrie
La performance nasce dalla suggestion suscitata dagli scritti di Rachel Corrie, ragazza ventitreenne Americana morta in Palestina Travolta da una ruspa mentre, come voontaria, cercava con il suo corpo di fare scudo per evitare la demolizione di una casa palestinese. Non vuole parlare del conflitto israelo-palestinese ne di tutte le implicazioni che tale conflitto contiene, ma indagare cosa questa testimonianza lascia dentro di noi che rimaniamo.
