Sensing through touch / Contact Improvisation Class & Jam
October 19, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Asking them what their most valuable sense is, most people will answer the sight or the hearing. Few consider that without the tactile sense we would become blocks of stone.
According to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, tactile sense is the first sense that appears in humans. It allows us to recognize certain characteristics of the physical objects we come into contact with, such as hardness, shape or temperature. The transmission of tactile sense information from the outer surface of the body to the brain is possible through the complex mechanisms, which come from highly specialized cells for this purpose, the tactile receptors.
Touching is also one of the basic foundations of dance called Contact Improvisation, along with weight transfer, momentum power or running the point of contact.
Through a series of exercises we will turn our attention to the tactile sense, thus connecting us with one or more dance partners.
