Event Details

Dear dancing ones,

Due to the current covid-19 pandemic and its safety regulations we had to cancel my favorite workshop of the year. I was exited to use this workshop as a chance to explore new territory and to reconnect to what I am painfully missing. I had a clear vision of how many nurturing experiences may be still possible, while also longing for an injection of my dancing and teaching self with like-minded movers and beings.
Since I am based in Australia at the moment I’d need to go through the 2-weeks quarantiene procedure on both ends of my tour, which is not a real option for me right now.
So, I am full of hope that things improve and I’ll be able to teach my winter intensive January 2-6.
Celebrate embodyment and dancing wherever possible

2-weeks Summer Intensive in Contact Improvisation

with Joerg Hassmann, 17-28 August 2020, Berlin

We will dive into detailed sensing and researching connections within our bodies. We will wonder what it is that makes us feel in touch with ourselves, with a dance partner, and as an independent, yet connected part of the whole group.

CI technique will offer scenarios to research these questions and specific themes will naturally emerge in the meeting of our curiosities. I imagine time & timing as one red thread of these two weeks. How long can I stay interested in a certain topic? When do new topics pop up? When am I ready to let go of ‘going step by step’ and instead leap into the world of open possibilities? We will practice allowing slowness and surprisingly quick changes.

The Summer Intensive is a journey of two weeks that we undertake individually and also together as a group. This makes different kinds of learning and growing possible than in shorter formats. I am grateful to still be able to share this format here in Europe while living on the other side of the planet.

Participants should feel very familiar with CI. We will ask about your dance and movement background upon registration.
