Contact Improvisation

Contact Improvisation

What is Contact Improvisation?

Dancing Contact Improvisation opens and refines the facility and awareness of our constant relationship with gravity as we move, both in solo and in contact with a partner. There are no fixed movement phrases. Instead we practice reading and responding to gravity now, as it happens, entering a state of not knowing and presence, following flow into improvisation.

How does practicing Contact Impro look like?

In preparation to dance we develop our relationship to the floor, finding effortless, fluid, organic ways to organize our bodies. Communicating through touch, we learn a subtle precise somatic language that expands the quality and possibilities of our movement and experiencing itself. From slow to dynamic typical practice ranges from rolling, falling, sliding, spiraling, following a physical point of contact to supporting or giving weight.
