We intend to create for participants a new corporal experience and a different perspective on movement through specific improvisation exercises that Virginia Negru developed and perfected during her CI weekly classes in Bucharest (2015-2018), intensive workshops in the country (Iasi, Brasov , Cluj, Timisoara, Craiova, Bistrita) and training artists (PETEC projects). Throughout the world, this form is practiced by both dancers and actors in order to improve their physical abilities, orientation in space, composition, spontaneity and coherence of movement.

Workshop Content:

– Basic elements of Contact Improvisation – Continuous change of center of gravity, rolling and other ways of moving the contact point, working with the force of gravity;

– biomechanical / body geometry elements that naturally lead to lifting the partner without exaggerated effort; elements related to other somatic forms – BMC, Ideokinesis, Feldenkrais – the rise of the body to the vertical position, images that influence and organize movement, the study of walking;

– Composition elements space and time-inspired practice like Viewpoints and Poetic Movement.
