02oct(oct 2)09:0003(oct 3)13:30Contact Improvisation Workshop in BrisbaneTransferring Weight

Event Details

How can we reduce bumpiness when dancing with shared weight? How to be smooth in our bodies and the connection to a dance partner? Softness & strength, how do they go together?
It is highly likely that ‘trust’ is a big part of the answer to these questions – not blind trust, though. A mixture of listening to instant feedback, intuition and reflection.
Somatically we’ll work with the fluids and the bones. Fluids for softness and connectedness, bones for structural support and understanding. We’ll explore how make the transitions more fluid between situations of independency and co-dependency, from sharing only light touch to giving more of my physical self into supporting another person or being lifted.
This Workshop welcomes people who are new to Contact Improvisation. And dancers with more experience usually get even more out of this work.
