CI Workshop – ‘Keys to the Dance’ by Ksenia Isaeva
27 May 2019 @ 18 h 30 min - 28 May 2019 @ 21 h 30 min
SPECIAL EDITION – SERIES OF CI
KEYS TO THE DANCE –→ Workshop + JAM <KEYS TO THE DANCE>
There are plenty of keys to the dance. I mean keys for the mind to focus on and let me go from daily thoughts into the dance.
During these encounters I would like to explore with you some of what I consider to be keys to the dance –→ FREE NECK, OPEN SPIRALS and ALIVE BACKSPACE.
In my experience:
– free neck allows more easy up side down positions in the dance and more fluent, efficient lifts
– it opens the spine, its natural waves and spirals. Then it opens the backspace!
– there is something about released neck and released mind..
– unknown and safe backspace
In the classes, we will explore ways of letting the neck free and how this opens our dances
Mix level workshop! (some experience in contact improvisation is required)

A short bio:
Ksenia Isaeva (Moscow)
9 years ago I’ve met CI and step by step it pulled me in completely.
Now I live in Moscow and travel a lot. Mostly following the dance and particular dance spirit – Angelica Doniy, assisting and dancing together. I taught CI in Russia, Europ, Goa, Argentina, Brazil.
I love dancing CI, to learn continiously from different teachers from all over the world, to teach and organize CI events.
I am very inspired by such practices as Authentic movement, bodywork, somatiques, dance in the nature. With all this I nourish my dance and integrate it in my contact improvisation. I’ve graduated in the Institute for Holistic Dance and Movement pedagogy of Sabine Parzer.
My current interest in CI:
How to open the field of experiment and exploration in CI and.. be able to let it all go, when you fall in pure energy of the dance.
