Three practices of Underscore with Lilly Picts

Saturday 22nd October, Saturday 12th November and Saturday 10th December 2011

Lilly Picts (U.K./U.S.A.) is very happy to be facilitating a series of three underscore practices in Montréal throughout the Fall, in partnership with A.C.I. www.contactimpro.org¸.

The underscore is a long jamming contact improvisation score that Nancy Stark Smith has been developing since 1990. It guides us through a progression of “changing states” of body and mind—from solo sensitizing to gravity and support, into group circulation and contact improvisation engagements, opening out into whole-room compositional awareness and interaction, and back to rest and reflections.

These sessions are open to newcomers to the underscore, a full ‘talk through’ will be given at each session, but some experience of contact improvisation is required. If you have any queries about the suitability of the practice for you please drop me a line via email : Lilly Picts lilly.picts@hotmail.com

Participants are respectfully reminded that they MUST be present for the WHOLE 3 hour practice.

For further information on the underscore by Nancy Stark Smith please see www.nancystarksmith.com or see her book Caught Falling available through contact collaborations www.contactquarterly.com

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.
