In this workshop we will combine various approaches to body work (manipulations, Tai massage techniques and alignment work) with the duet dance form known as contact Improvisation. The body work will help open and repattern the body and help cultivate economy, efficiency and freedom of movement.

Contact is a system of movement based on the communication between two or more moving bodies and their combined relationship to the physical laws that govern their motion – gravity, momentum, energy and inertia. It is a free play with balance bringing forth a physical/emotional truth about a shared moment of movement that leaves participants informed, centered and enlivened. Practice includes rolling smoothly, falling safely, being upside down, supporting and giving weight effortlessly. Alertness is developed in order to work in an energetic state of physical disorientation, trusting in one’s basic survival instincts..

Andrew Harwood and Paula Zacharias have been touring together over the past year and have taught and performed in Mexico, Argentina, Australia, Russia, and five different countries in Europe. Paula has an extensive background as a videographer-photographer and has been involved in Contact work for over 20 years. Andrew is one of the world’s ambassador’s of improvisational work, most notably in Contact Improvisation. He has taught and performed internationally since 1975.
