First Touch of CI (Beginners)

July 5 @ 18 h 30 min - 20 h 30 min

After the exciting experience of last year with this workshop, I renew this format with the hope to allow more people to enter Contact Improvisation practice.

For me, Contact Improvisation proposes a deep exploration of so many aspects of Life through dance:

-it is about MOVEMENT, so we explore physicality, body sensations, energies,…

-it is about RELATING TO OTHERS, so we witness our ego and emotions rising at each encounter,…

-it is about CONTACT, so we reconnect to one of the fundamental needs of human beings to feel alive, touch, that has been so much disregarded in occidental cultures…

-it is about IMPROVISATION: so we offer the opportunity for our presence and awareness to develop, our creativity to manifest, and our spirituality to arise.

This is just to mention only a few sides, among many others, of this practice for personal development.

I feel really moved to witness new people entering the field, because you can tell it challenges many foundations of their being. And you see them evolve!

I want to be inclusive and accessible. People feeling like diving into this practice, whether you are “a dancer” or not, I hope to meet you soon.

This evening workshop is specially directed to people who never practiced contact improvisation and would like to have a first dive in it.

During those five evenings of discovery of the rich practice of Contact Improvisation, we will connect with our physicality, body sensations and emotions. By developing trust in the moment and a group feeling, we will slowly take off to the realms of improvised partnered dance.

We will put an emphasis on sensory exploration of movement of touch to find fluidity and surrendering. A soft movement quality enables to establish gentle connections with dance partners. In addition to this, the basic physical principles of the discipline will be exposed and experienced in the body. We will set the starting skills to safely enter in a Jam of contact impro.

——————

Cet atelier de 5 jours est s’adresse tout spécialement aux personnes ayant peu ou jamais pratiqué le contact improvisation et qui voudraient s’y immerger pour la 1ère fois.

Lors de ces 5 soirées de découverte de cette riche pratique, nous prendrons le temps de nous connecter à notre physicalité, à nos sensations corporelles et nos émotions. En développant une confiance dans l’instant présent and un esprit de groupe, nous glisserons doucement vers le monde de la danse improvisée avec partenaires.

Nous mettrons l’accent sur l’exploration sensitive du mouvement et du touché afin de trouver la fluidité et l’abandon. Une qualité de mouvement fluide permet d’établir une connection agréable avec ses partenaires de danse. Par ailleurs, les principes physiques fondamentaux de cette discipline seront exposés et expérimentés dans le corps. Nous construirons les connaissances de départ pour entrer dans une Jam de contact impro en toute sécurité.
