Observing the interior, negotiating the exterior
Our body is an ingenious system that develops its own memory. Since we are born, the body records states, thoughts and emotions. From the way we walk, the flexibility we dance with, the confidence we have in ourselves and the way we adapt to changes, these are all written inside the our bodies.
We will start moving through a mixture of Contact Improvisation elements and conscious movement techniques and we will let this embodied memory express itself, we’ll quiet down the mind and emotions, we’ll learn to make room for flexibility and organicity.
Thus, the course will be a mix of contemporary dance techniques and Contact Improvisation designed to bring us in contact with what our body is transmitting and in a subtle dialogue with those around us. From this space of communication, our dance will be born.
