Contact Tango Workshop: “TRADITIONAL ANARCHY” (Brussels).

During this workshop we will focus on keeping or letting go of an EMBRACE, in a continuous exchange first with a partner, then in trios and finally with the whole of the group.
Several lines of dancing will be established (including the traditional anticlock-wise ronda) and also broken in various ways. Yet throughout those exercises of mixing the traditional with anarchy we will keep the promise of sharing our walking with passionate commitment and playful energies on tango-esques melodies.
These in aeternum loops nourish our connection to relate to ourselves and others in a simple yet profound way.

Open to all levels and background.
Bring curious mind, body and spirit!

‘Balancing Acts II’ with Adriana Pegorer in Brussels

We will continue to work on subtle weight shifts to cultivate the art of being in connection to a partner. In the previous workshops (November and July 2018) we focused on connecting the spine to legs and arms.
In this one I would like to focus on the final limb: the head!
And in particular the magnificent inner ear…

These are some of the questions we will pursue:
How does the spine articulates with the skull, eyes, jaw?
Can we embrace with our eyes? Move with our ears? Feel with our breath?
How can we perceive and experience the balancing shifts within our own vestibular system?
We will play with different intentions as we learn to creatively offer-receive microscopic shifts of weight – how can this art of balancing inform the partnership at all times in a playful way?

The movement and dancing explorations will be both in a standing and lying position using a mat. We will play with Tango and Contact Improvisation vocabularies with some influences from other techniques and methods.

Level: Open to all levels and background. Bring curious mind, body and spirit!

—————————– NEDERLANDS ———————————-

In deze workshop richten we onze focus op de relatie met ons hoofd (en ons ‘innerlijke oor’ in het bijzonder).

Hoe staan onze rug en schedel/oog/kaken in verbinding?
Hoe maken we een omhelzing met onze ogen?
Kunnen we bewegen vanuit onze oren?

Alle mogelijke variaties in balans: hoe kunnen we die waarnemen/ervaren vanuit wat heet ons ‘vestibulair systeem’?
En hoe kan dat bewustzijn op een speelse wijze bijdragen tot de relatie met onze partner?

Deze vragen zullen we verkennen, zowel liggend als staand. Met o.a. elementen van Contact Impro en tango.

‘Niveau’: iedereen is welkom, ook wie geen ervaring heeft (de oefeningen volstaan op zichzelf, en bij het dansen kan iedereen zijn eigen achtergrond inbrengen – tango, contact impro of beide).

Studio: privé-studio in Laken, met een mooie, houten vloer, op wandelafstand van de kerk van Laken (het precieze adres verkrijg je bij inschrijving).

Opmerkingen:
– we doen op lichaamsbewustzijn gerichte oefeningen, samen met (een) partner(s), ook met aanraking
– er is een (korte, max. 1 uur) eetpauze voorzien – breng iets mee om te eten, en graag ook iets om te delen…
– de workshop zal in het Engels worden gegeven, vertaling (nederlands / frans) is mogelijk

———————————— FRANÇAIS ——————————————

La suite d’une série de workshops (débutée en juillet, poursuivie en novembre ’18). Cette fois-ci, avec l’accent sur la relation avec notre tête (et notre ‘oreille intérieure’ en particulier).

Notre dos, comment est-il connecté à notre crâne/nos yeux/nos mâchoires?
Est-ce qu’on peut bouger à partir des yeux? Des oreilles?

Les petits changements de balance: comment est-ce qu’on les perçoit à partir du ‘système vestibulaire’?

On va explorer ces questions (et beaucoup d’autres ;-) ) sur le sol, debout et en dansant. En empruntant des élements du contact impro et du tango.

‘Niveau’:
ouvert à tout le monde (aussi sans expérience, les ‘exercises’ suffisent comme support; sinon, tout le monde apporte sa propre expérience, du monde du contact ou du tango, ou des deux)

Studio: studio privé à Laken, tout près de l’église (adresse sera communiquée après inscription).

Remarques:
– les exercises qu’on va proposer visent à développer plus de conscience de corps, parfois avec du toucher
– il y aura un petit (max. 1 heure) pause pour boire/manger un petit truc: veuillez emmener qq chose à grignoter ou peut-être partager…
– l’atelier sera en anglais – traduction est possible (néerlandais, français – ce petit texte vous donne une idée de la qualité… ;-) )

‘Balancing acts’ with Adriana Pegorer in Brussels

The BALANCING ACTS workshop aims to fine-tune the connection within a standing dancing duet.

We will work on connecting arms and legs to our own centre to then share this centre with a partner in dynamic, creative and precise ways.

We will play with different intentions as we learn to creatively offer and receive microscopic shifts of weight – how can this art of balancing inform the partnership at all times in a playful way?
This material will also offer the possibility for gentle lifts to arise (optional).

As we explore these possibilities we will play with different movement vocabularies and in particular those of Tango and Contact Improvisation. If you dance other dances you are welcome to join too!

Everybody is welcome.

NOTE: The workshop includes body-awareness explorations with a partner involving touch.

STUDIO: a beautiful wooden floor in a private studio in Laken (Central Brussels)

We will inform you with the address at registration.

Contact Tango workshop in Brussels

In this workshop we will work at cultivating a space-sense from within and extend it, as we imagine an eagle flying over an immense landscape (Patagonia, the Artic, the Amazons, the Sahara…. lots to pick from!).

As an embrace fluidly transform we travel in a zigzag and around each other: my idea of Contact Tango!

Expect some initial bodywork on the floor to soften and release spine, legs and arms to then work at connecting with other’s and with the music.

Open to all

We are planning to go to the regular BRUjam on Sunday 17-20 [included in the price].

Level: Open
Limited spaces!!

STUDIO: a beautiful wooden floor in Laken
5 minutes walk from Église Notre-Dame de Laeken, Parvis 1020 Bruxelles, Belgium
