Dance improvisation in nature : creative treks, contact improvisation et contact with the environment, solo & collective works, dance of elements, incorporation, …

An occasion to compose and interact with the inner and outer environment, through a research of suitable body-mind states for spontaneous creation and surpassing of our limits. Between technique and trance, there is our encounter with the dance of now : an improvisation based on being (instead of doing), on receptivity (instead of productivity), on openness to nature (instead exclusion).

During this workshop, we will travel along the forest several times, across the land of the ’Domaine du Lac Seize’. We will improvise in contact with the elements, the partners and the forces surrounding and penetrating us, through scores that are sometimes quite open, sometimes more structured. We will have some time for indoor practices. We will be supported by the music of our bodies and nature. Some moments for integration, writing, sharing and demonstrating (small performances between us) will also be offered.

Costs : $250 - $290 - $330, according to your capacity to pay.
*$200 - $240 - $280, if registration before July 15, 2014*

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.
