"Travelling - on the floor and on higher levels"

Body surfing is a commonly underestimated part of Contact Technique. Probably because it is highly complex and more difficult to understand than shoulderlifts but less satisfying for the ego. We use it as a way to get from body work into dancing and hope for the intelligence of our bodies to kick in. Body surfing is a treasure box for excitement that we only manage to unpack if the bodies stay soft and connected. I want to use the idea of travelling to get out of the snuggly body work state into the state of dancing CI. I will set foci on developmental movement patterns (especially the reach), the myo-fascia web, detailed communication through touch, suspension, momentum and the polarities of commitment vs freedom and being readable vs surprising. All these topics I want to revisit when travelling in standing level. The verticality of standing and the mainly horizontal orientation on floor level have very different feels to it while using a lot of similar principles. Working on both of them I am looking forward to see how the bodies start longing to create transitions and connections between the two spheres and which intelligence of our bodies will kick in then.
