In this workshop you can discover the magic of contact improvisation and tantric meditations mostly in water but also on earth, so that you will deal with the natural force of both elements.

Psychology of Contact Improvisation with Stuart Phillips
The Centre for Movement Arts, #9 4005 9 St SE, Calgary, Alberta , Canada

W&M Dance Projects and Contact Improv Calgary present:

Psychology of Contact Improvisation:
An existential foray into why we even do this
A 3-day workshop with Stuart Phillips
Open to all

What am I doing? Where am I going? What is happening now? What happens next? Who am I really?

This workshop taught by Stuart Phillips will explore unblocking patterned responses, making way for more authentically relating scenarios through dance improvisation.
Our approach is intentionally but yet organically shifting our psychological view to more unfamiliar states, ultimately opening our shared dance experience to more poignant
and unknown realms which are extremely satisfying and nurturing.

1. Guidance into where we source from.
2. How we influence our choices in the moment, what is our long range focus?
3. How does viewing perspective of the moment inform outcome?
4. How do we choose this particular arrangement? What can we get rid of to stay completely real all the time?
5. How dance informs and defines our experience, our self identity, our self enrichment.

Dates and Times:
Friday, Dec 9, 2016 – 6-9pm
Saturday, Dec 10, 2016 – 11am-5pm (Potluck 1-2pm)
