The Language of Touch: Moving beyond two
This workshop focuses on the many levels of touch in order to take CI from duet to ensemble creative work. Based in the underlying principles of Contact Improv this workshop pushes the boundaries of our self-sense. Understanding how we communicate through developing clear temporal and spatial practices that are ecologically based is essential to offering greater creative freedom, and kinder, more temporally elastic physical engagements. In this workshop we will learn about and practice the motion of attention, intention, enactive tactile reach, assembling and disassembling, and ways to experience time, while also disturbing our ideas of where we as individuals exist spatially. Learning to make a difference is also to be made to be different: touching and being touched. This workshop teaches us to offer to the dance a self-sense that changes and a presence that is articulate and speaks as a world in motion.
