From Micro to Expansive:  Contact Improvisation Workshop with Somatic Inspirations facilitated by Jonathan Brússolo

Bring attention to sensations, starting this “micro” journey inwards – a journey that connects us to what’s small and concrete, that enables us to perceive physicality from a contemplative state.

It could be the first impulse towards embodying movement, towards awakening instinctive-intuitive memories of what it means to move, explore space, explore the relationship with the floor and the interaction with others, giving rise to the state of presence that curiosity offers us.During the workshop we will explore through different somatic approaches (Body-mind-centering, Feldenkrais and Dinamic Anatomy), inviting attention to become body and presence, testing how to distribute weight, and how force travels through bodies in different directions. Ideas of weight, counterweight, falls, lifts, dynamic architectures and adaptations to a mutable form will be present.

All levels of dance experience welcome!
