All levels workshop: beginners welcome
ROLLING ON A GRASSY HILLIn this workshop we will start with the fundamentals of Contact Improvisation: the contact point, weight sharing, pathways into the floor and into the air, and finding the root of levity. Special emphasis on releasing the neck and pelvis, and surprising ourselves in flight and extended follow-through. Saturday and Sunday January 10 and 11 From 1 to 5 PM each day Martin Keogh has taught and performed contact improvisation for over three decades. For his contribution to the development of the form he is a Fulbright Senior Specialist and listed in Who’s Who in the World.
