Independence & connectedness
I wish to have two essential poles of our CI practice more alive and available: the committed weight sharing duet that builds up physical & emotional trust for subtleties & risk taking. And on the other side the selfsuffiency of soloing as a base to connect, to disengage from others, to play with space, time and the whole group, to surprise oneself and bringing varous spices into the dance.
Hands on work and very juicy, moving body work explorations will lead us into our contact bodies, nurturing trust and depth in the co-physicality, and make us reach out to the edges of our comfort zone.
To feed the solo as a base for our improvisational journeys, I want to find somatically grounded ways to play with space and timing. Wonderinhg how to switch between different mental states that make us feel alive – individually and as a whole group together.
And we will dance a lot!
