28aug10:0017:00Contact Improvisation Workshop / Gold CoastTransferring Weight

Event Details

A day of somatic awareness and self inquiries
This Workshop welcomes people who are new to the form as well as long term practitioners. It introduces a basic vocabulary around moving together with touch and shared weight in a way that feels more effortless and free. A core question will be ‘how to transfer weight?’ How to stay listening and manouevrable when we meet in the touch, with little and also more weight, maybe a small lift.
Indeed, we will connect in the mystery of Contact, and meet the clunkiness with curiosity and openness. Ultimately we aim to move from awkward and unsure of ‘what to do next’ into freedom to play and move beyond edges. This workshop will support you in understanding the fundamental basics of transferring / sharing weight. From here, you can deepen into your Contact Improv practice with more confidence. From here, the possibilities open up in your dance.
