Seeing/being seen as gateways into Contact Improvisation
Participants are invited to explore vision (in the broadest, most inclusive sense of the word) as a way of touching. The idea is to carefuly listen to the states experienced while seeing and being seen, letting them both trigger and guide the dances we'll share together. My goal is to question what it means to see and touch in Contact Improvisation as well as to disrupt oppositional notions of passive/active rapports in shared improvised dances through the experience of seeing as a reciprocal and synesthetic co-creation.
Conrado Falbo is an interdisciplinary artist working with movement, sound and drawing through the perspective of improvisation both as a creative and interactive approach to performance, teaching/researching and healing. Since 2007 he´s been investigating the possibilities of voice beyond speech and song, further developping his research through the process of getting an MA and PhD degrees in Literary Theory from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (Brazil), where he also taught Voice and Movement at the Drama/Dance department as a temporary teacher. Since 2011, as a member of Coletivo Lugar Comum (independent collective based in Recife, Brazil), he´s been experimenting with interdisciplinary performance in public spaces and collaborative creative practices. For the past 6-7 years he´s also been intensely committed to the discipline of Authentic Movement (under the supervision of Soraya Jorge, former pupil of Janet Adler and introducer of the discipline in Brazil) and Contact Improvisation (having studied with teachers from various nationalities/backgrounds and helping organize workshops and festivals throughout Brazil).
