Improvisation workshop, in Montreal, with Moti Mark Zemelman (USA) & al.

Saturday October 1st, 2011, 1 to 6 PM

DEEP LISTENING: Intersections in Contact Improv, Compassionate Communication, and Tantra

Contact Improvisation is an honoring of our own bodies and each body that we encounter. Even though CI offers more intimacy than any dance form I know of, there are so many ways we can continue to deepen.

Using tools from Marshall Rosenberg’s Non-violent Communication as a common language we’ll explore our underlying observations, feelings, needs, and practice asking for what we truly desire in the dance.

In this safe and sacred container we’ll also use Tantra inspired exercises integrating stillness, breath, slow-motion, eye-contact, sound and energetic awareness to explore being more deeply present and empathetic with our dance partners.

(feel free to come with a partner or on your own)

Registration before September 23 please.

Cost: $45. Reservation: moti@contactimprov.com

At Studio 303, 372 Ste-Catherine West street, 3rd floor, PDA metro

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.
