This workshop presents practical tools for researching how we physically interact with the environment and cultivates our ability to question again our root understandings of ordinary movement and what our physical sensations tell us. This ability is a basis for furthering our development as movers and dance makers.
Using physical sensation together with anatomical information we explore the details of how gravity and visual information flow through the muscular, skeletal, organ, and nervous system structures inside of our body.
The visible boundaries of our body are transparent to the force of gravity. Gravity does not know the difference between what is us and what is our environment. We move ourselves by extending our architecture into the environment. The environment answers. We move it and it moves us.
Exercises are designed to help us embody this duality.
This material is based in the legacy of information from Anatomical Releasing Technique, 40 years of dancing Contact Improvisation, explorations in contemporary dance and the personal movement research and performance practice of Daniel and Sakura .
The movement of attention.
Inside primary patterns: rolling, walking, crawling, running, and jumping.
Space is a part of our body.
Stillness organizing to move.
What is an image?, What is being an image.
How do we relate to physical objects.
Seeing and being seen.
How do we prepare for dancing?
What is dance? What is the culture?!
Tarif : 400$ (hébergement et repas inclus) - 370$ si incription avant le 25 juin
Stage possiblement suivi d’une présentation/conférence à Montréal le 12 juillet 2013

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
