Come experience an enriching and fun weekend of contact improv with renowned dancer and teacher – Moti Zemelman
Date: October 17/18, 2015
Theme – COVERING GROUND
Focuses on finding new approaches towards transitioning to the ground – The first step towards flying! What goes up must come down! (More often called FALLING!!). Falling can be fun. Learn about your SOFT landing gear. For those who are new to Contact Improv or those with experience who want to brush up, fall down, flop, drop, dip, slip, slide, nosedive, and get grounded!
SUNDAY 2pm -6pm:
Theme – FLIGHT PATTERNS
A study in the art of flying, we’ll explore lifts, weight-sharing and the dynamics of flight. Learn to develop more comfort with heights, being upside-down, and using momentum through the air. We will practice listening to the subtle invitations that our partners offer us to go UP and find new pathways towards the sky!
Imagine every part of your body can find pathways through the air. The air traffic control center is your whole being. Impulses, instincts, intuition, and reflexes all tell our bodies how to circumnavigate the atmosphere around us. Recognizing the patterns that already exist in us, our partners, and in the physical world allow us to reconstruct time and space. Come set your GPS coordinates for new destinations.
