DESCRIPTION OF THE THEMATIC:
This intensive will foster a space and skills for high-stakes, accountable, and responsive contact dancing.

I propose that we dance with the bodies that we have, as the people we are, to invite unintentional magic.
I organize from a highly technical and strongly political research-oriented approach to training contact improvisation through an open system contact body.

We will practice practical anatomical, physical, and perceptual skills to open up avenues of awareness.
As we increase options/sensitivity for internal connectivity, touch, sustainably supporting/dispersing weight, finding disequilibrium, transferring force, and negotiating gravity we will also cultivate skills that support an unrelenting willingness to stay in.

We will take this work INTO SPACE as an active partner. Generosity, endurance, subtlety, transgression, composition, and responsive articulation will help frame our practices.
We will work with solo body, with partners in small constellations, and as a whole group. We will invite being seen and supporting/being supported as a performance practice. We will practice setting boundaries and be real about power/consent.

Let’s say yes to difference within shifting proximities. Strategies will emerge through our practice.
How can our dancing tenderize our states of being while our states of being tenderize our dancing? I believe that we are the politics of our dancing.

My approach to teaching CI is increasingly informed by my study of the Feldenkrais® Method and social justice work. Intersectionality is central to my work.

All of my work prioritizes agency and honesty as we practice radical independence and responsible citizenship through our dancing. Bring your questions, grit, politics, and brave dancing selves into this contact improvisation research.

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.
