Description

I will teach an Intensive at the InTouch Festival Barcelona, called


(in-) dependency in Contact Improvisation

Contact Improvisation is first of all a huge limitation of movement options. But we gain a few possibilities in this co-depencency, which we can't have on our own - and they are fantastic. How much freedom can I keep in a committed weight sharing CI duet. But also, how can I nurture my own dance so that choosing a duet is not based on the fear of being alone?

For the 'dependency' part we will explore basic CI techniques committing to the point of contact, whatever comes. As a sweet challenge we'll use material from the back space world. Understanding the physics of communication through touch will give us clearity in the contact and a precise estimation how much we can trust the support from the partner. The balance of trust and fear guided by our honesty and curiosity will play an important role in this intensive.

Finding indepency will be an underlying focus. It is more about a state of mind, a combination of commitment to the moment without getting attached to it. A sense of freedom and wider connectedness might appear and enrich the jams.
