Don’t agree too quickly // Contact Improvisation Class & Jam
November 9, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
In Contact Improvisation don’t say ‘Yes!’ immediately a movement or impulse has a practical role. When we come into physical contact with an object or a person, if we carefully watch the moment of the meeting, we notice that we are encountering a certain resistance. One of the causes is inertia, that is, resistance to change. In contact dance we can use this force to generate new movements and to offer and receive support.
I propose, in Saturday’s class, to try not to anticipate the direction or impulse we receive but to stop, wait, observe what happens and only then respond. Whether we follow the partner in his invitation or oppose it, we develop the awareness that there are more possibilities and that we can choose when we realize what the options are.
For this we will conduct awareness exercises of the center of our body in relation to the center of the partner and we will investigate the role of inertia in Contact Improvisation. We will learn to wait, to oppose and to choose. We will discover how in dance contradictory forces can be creative forces.
