Dear Contacters,

I am very much looking forward to the most spacious and intense CI event of my year - the 2-weeks Summer Intensive in Berlin. Last minute we changed location and time, since our wonderful 'Home' Somatische Akademie Berlin became available. So please note: the dates on the flyer are wrong!
Enjoy planing your summer while the days are getting longer!


2-weeks Summer Intensive in Contact Improvisation with Joerg Hassmann

'Multidirectionality - Clarity in the Unknown' 
  8-19 August 2016 in Berlin

For experienced contacters

Our starting point for these two weeks will be the awareness that any prominent direction finds support and clarity by acknowledging the counter direction. I don't know into how many directions we can invest into at the same time. For me the crucial question is, how to change directions, so that many directions feel available at any moment. The backspace will receive some extra attention.

For the solo moving body we'll look at 'reaching', using the wisdom and elasticity of the fascia. It might give inspirations to the essential mystery of 'How can I feel my body connected from within?'. In terms of CI we'll obsess about the touch, the open directions in the movement under the skin. Concerning the committed weight exchange I want to keep the pelvis happy and available to follow in all possible directions. A focus on bones and joints will provide sources for an alive chaos to counterbalance all the clarity of directions and to support an attitude of knowing less.

'Clarity in the unknown' is the sweet vision that brings these polarities together.

Participants need to feel very much at home in CI, being able to negotiate their way through jams or other open frames without much guidance. Three years of regular practice is an estimated minimum of experience to follow the workshop.
