Programming category: 

A 3-week intensive for dancers with experience in Contact Improvisation (intermediate level)

Contact Improvisation
Solo Training • Changing States
Composition • Performance
Improvisation Scores • The Underscore

This residential workshop is specifically designed to develop our practice of Contact Improvisation and other related improvised dance work: physical training, improvisation and composition scores, listening practice, jamming, watching, discussion, feedback, labs, contemplative practice, and performance studies. Experimenting with solo, duet, trio, and group work; in and out of contact; in silence and with live music, we will move toward greater clarity and inspiration in our dancing and watching. Please come prepared physically and psychologically for intensive practice (and a bit of fun!).
