Falling Into Place
I’m sailing in a small boat down the river
As I’m passing by the dock,
I slow down (its curiosity there)
And you come off the dock
to sail, to join
Now everything is changing,
as we go on.
(Or is it the other way around?)
My love for the spaces of Contact Improv ranges from the specific, physical, bodily, fleshy sense - to the more wide open perceptions, where there are "rules for the game" and so, everything is possible.
Between the crazy, wild, energetic, to the attentive, quiet and clear.
I notice that a structure of time were there is room for a regular "practice" – a place for very specific ideas, and also a room for experimental spaces – gives a good container for rich experiences and meaningful learning.
Within the specific ideas we will play with the back space of the body, explore decompositions and falls, and go to upside downs, opposites and the other way around..
In the more open spaces we will play with themes of gender, attention and listening, going fast and slowing down, and sharpening the senses and the sensuality.
I also like to combine free writing, and the ability to watch each other, and to be seen.
We'll use all this to dive into more full, wide, present and creative contact improvisation dances.
