Spontaneous Performative Composition in Contact Improvisation


In this intensive, CI will be our home base to dive deeper into the form and also to reach further out from it. As a performance art form, the challenge in contact is perhaps about letting go of preconceived notions of performing, of finding a way to dance without pretence, so that the ability to respond freely and unselfconsciously becomes the goal. Rich with sensations and imagination, this dance form leaves its participants informed, centered and enlivened.
