FILM SCREENING
Part of Contact Dance International Film Festival (CDIFF)

A rhizome is an underground plant whose stem grows horizontally, emitting roots and herbaceous shoots. Rhizomes have no centre and grow indefinitely. Older parts die and new shoots grow, allowing it to cover large areas. Inspired by rhizomes, this dance project is a site specific contact dance performance involving seventy dancers of all ages and abilities, and ten musicians. It takes place as the sun rises. Bodies intertwine, fall and rise, form nodes and pull apart. Locations are chosen for historical significance – often places where death and violence occurred. Rizoma is a regrowth, a healing, and a return to human connection. This a film of a version that was performed at Rovereto, the field of peace in remembrance of the fallen soldiers of every war. The backdrop of passing fog and clouds and the Bell of the Fallen (the largest working bell in the world) is visually stunning.

Gymhall Weissenheim, Bern 3013, Switzerland

In this workshop Contact Improvisation will help us to learn how to take care of ourselves, to experience and clarify boundaries and to find freedom and competence to shape our dance according to our wishes – in order to commit deeply to the common flow and to profit fully from meeting the different dance partners.
While dancing we are constantly looking for the sensation of coherence in order to “feel good” in the common movement. But what does this mean for all of us individually and in every single moment? We have to find out! E.g. do I get enough weight or rather too little? Do I have the space that I need to feel safe or is there not enough proximity to feel nourished? What about the quality of touch and the movement dynamic? Is it worth to stay with the dance, is it interesting enough?
To take care of yourself means immediately to meet boundaries, limits and limitations – your own and your partner’s. It’s about going for the interplay between release and challenge as well as the need to deal constantly with your boundaries and your movement impulses, to communicate all this physically and to engage fully into the dance, the space and towards your partners – sometimes in an even daring way. All dancers doing this will help to clarify immediately what is okay for everybody and the freedom to move and skills for communication will increase tremendously.
Beside Contact Improvisation elements of New Dance will help us to change constellations smoothly and in a natural way (solo, duet, trio, group), to maintain creativity and the pleasure to move also without having physical contact and to enlarge the field of communication. Improvisation will go beyond the duet form and the dancers experience more overall connections and can play with them. Letting go of unnecessary reserve and the respect for boundaries, limits and limitations will enable us to dive deep into a universe of movement and encounter full of power, subtlety and pleasure and to experience new dimensions in our dance.
Open for participants with experience in CI or another improvisation form. The workshop will take place in a wonderful location with the option to move according to the weather some classes to the outside and to explore the theme in a natural surrounding (for those who like – there will be indoor classes at the same time).

FILM SCREENING
Part of the Contact Dance International Film Festival

Length: 1.15 hours

Filmmakers: Mike Poltorak(UK), Sonja Bruhlmann (Switzerland) and Alyssa Lynes(USA)

Film description: Contact Improvisation first developed in the United States in the 1970s as a movement experiment that challenged dancers to respond instinctively to bodily collisions. Four decades later, the dance form continues to be investigated openly by people all over the world. This film follows the aspirations of five dancers as they navigate the joys and challenges of being with three hundred participants at the biggest Contact Improvisation festival in the world in the old German university town of Freiburg. Jashana, an American political activist and Raquel, a Brazilian volunteer at the festival, search for the political edge and community building potential of the form. Swedish biodynamic gardener, Johan and Israeli travelling teacher, Lior, share hopes for beautiful and challenging dances and new ways to teach the form. Camille from France had only recently discovered the form. He seeks the heart of Contact Improvision out of his comfort zone of salsa and sports in the pursuit of sensitivity and weight sharing. During a week where being part of a temporary community and the intimacy and physicality of the form can challenge even experienced dancers, will the Freiburg Festival deliver the inspiration and insights they seek?

La Moinerie, Le Magnoray, Haute Saone , France

CONTACT IMPROVISATION RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP

DANIELA SCHWARTZECKHARD MÜLLER
29. – 31.05.15 @ La Moinerie, France.

La Moinerie is an old farm converted into a dance studio in the peaceful countryside of Haute Saone. A wonderful environment to meet and deepen into a dance practice.

OPENING GATES INTO THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF MOVEMENT

This workshop will focus on the permeability of the bodies in a physical dialogue.
The key for the work will lay on the action of taking time and giving attention to the receiving and the delivery of information to become conscious of the communication that is happening in each dance, in relationship to the environment, the group, a partner and yourself. Aiming to look for distinguishing the diffuse and the specific in the dialogue between noticing and praying attention, we will create a frame to bring to consciousness the choices we make and possibilities they determine.
We will provoke a deep state of listening; questioning the communication in the dance and focusing the attentional mode on the multiplicity we are in action.

Ws dates: 29. – 31. 05.15

Arrival: from 17h on Friday 29th may

Departure: at 17h on Sunday 31st may

Sleeping on a bed in a yurt and all meals (bio vegetarian) are included in the workshop fee. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag.

BIOS
Eckhard Müller (Germany/France) and Daniela Schwartz (Argentina/France)
For the recent past 10 years we have been traveling and collaborating all over Europe and the Americas, sharing our vision and practice of CI, offering CI workshops and developing projects based on CI and Improvisation. Invited to teach in the frame of Universities, Dance Programs of Theaters and Studios and Dance Festivals. By collaborating, our interests influence each other, creating diverse and surprising pathways. We share the passion for improvisation, the present moment and how bodies communicate through movement and touch.
Daniela’s interest in the details and the capacity of attention and Eckhard’s fascination with the limits of physicality plunge them together into the research of perception and sensation to rediscover an open movement dialogue through the body. Both are co-organizers of the contactfestival in Freiburg, Germany, www.contactfestival.de and members of Co. Dégadézo, Strasbourg, France, www.degadezo.com.

Ws fee: 190 euros before 29.04.15, after 230 euros.
