05sepallday09CI Workshop in Israel near Tel Aviv - Sep 5-9The breathing point of contact - spaciousness and commitment in CI

Event Details


How can we combine commitment and spaciousness in a CI duet? Keeping the fasciantion for touch and shared weight alive, while allowing space to breathe?

A red thread in this research will be what I like to call ‘the breathing point of contact’, where the amount of weight we share is constantly changing. Moments of less weight allow the common architecture to shift easefully. It brings repeatedly moments of lightness and easy changes, while creating open invitations for lifts and transports. It allows more space and breath in the connection of the dance partners.

To support the sense of spacioness we’ll bring a focus on bones and joints, sensing the open directions a body can follow. I want to share ideas how to bring this into trio work and let it expand towards connections to the whole space. And more generally and deeply I like to adress the question of ‘What makes a jam a shared group experience, that goes far beyond a container for happy duets?’ 
So far the plan. Let’s see what wants to happen!

A familiarity with CI technique is required to follow the workshop. In doubt check in with us!
