Improving movement skills and achieving tools in somatic awareness for a clearer intention, decision and orientation in space.

Morning classes / tools and technique

 

Contact Improvisation with Tommy Russo
This series of classes will focus on improvisational tools and partnering technique in weight giving/sharing, flying and falling, as well as rolls, spins, and slides. We’ll be using our body’s central mass as the starting point, working from a soft floor into dual direction articulation, getting into pivot and fold phenomena. With respect to the physical laws that govern motion—gravity, momentum, and inertia, dancers can whirl around in a seemingly codified form but yet keep with the freshness and anarchic spirit of spontaneous invention. Fling, fly, push, roll… reaching somehow extraordinary moments of harmonious repose. Both as a compositional tool and movement practice we’ll be exploring the kinetic thrills and raw movement of C.I. contactimprovisation.

Flux/ Weekend workshop in Contact Improvisation with Guilhyan Schmirck

Tools, games, and exercises
Kinesphere and Spirals

In this workshop we’ll be exploring the flux of our dance using tools related to our kinesphere, it’s volume, lines, and dynamic. We’ll discover how by making the volume of our kinesphere denser or more porous it can simplify our link to the movement and infinitely feed our dance. We’ll also investigate the spiral as an organizational source, whether of the inner movement of our body, or that of our dance when traveling in space in duos, trios.. Letting the body and movement flow through each other, and giving us more fluidity.

When watching contact improvisation, we easily see that the ‘point of contact’ is one of the keystones in what’s a living, moving, dancing structure made by the dancers. But this travelling point of contact can only be right, rich, and pleasant if the basis is fully awake. So what is this basis? By opening our senses, and allowing ourselves to receive and give, we create a relationship that’s based on confidence and trust. And using our bodies like an arch, with our center, legs, and feet as columns, and this point of contact as a keystone, we can raise the structure of our dance from this awakened basis. And so from head to toe, from earth to sky, and with all of our senses, we establish a meaningfull relationship with ourselves and our partners, thus opening the way for a fuller experience. So let’s open our senses with ease in order to receive and give, and create a relationship of trust and fun with each other!
