24. mai 2014 - kl.10:00 25. mai 2014 - kl.10:00 6 hours each day PRODA-memb.: Free! Others: 300 kr (1 day) / 500 kr (2 days) Sted: DansiT Kurs og samtaler PRODA

Join this workshop with Katarina Eriksson and get two unique and exciting days of Contact Improvisation!

With an eye to clarity and sensitivity in our dancing, and with curiosity to where the principles of Contact Improvisation can take us moment by moment, we will study:

  1. Falling; finding the edge of our comfort zones, and making use of kinetic energy for ease of movement.
  2. Weigh articulation; discovering all the micro-grades on the scale for giving and receiving weight – respecting our own and our partners’ limitations without letting «politeness» dull the dance.
  3. Center awareness; cultivating direct and safe responses to gravity, with and without partner (-s).
  4. These concepts will be explored in solo, duo and as group improvisations in the spirit of collaboration, diversity of expression, and «beginner’s mind».
