“Dancing Deeper Still”
The workshop will cover in depth:
-silkworms sliding slowly out of their yellow cocoon
-leaves detaching from the tree with a slight breeze, suspended, floating
-the tiny pieces of a strange artifact and we do not know how it works
-a stream of cascading crystal clear water
-the denial of the simultaneity of time
-water drops piercing stone
-contemplating from the window of a moving train the landscape that is there but disappears instantly
We will work together five to six hours a day. Other activities will include jams, potlucks, and spontaneous surprises. We want to get to know you—your treasures, your idiosyncrasies, your distinctive pathways into contact improvisation.
Attending a weeklong training allows the group to establish working relationships, and provides the opportunity for everyone to receive feedback and create significant changes in their dancing
Because of the advanced nature of this workshop, this intensive is for those with a solid grasp of Contact fundamentals.
