Physics/Poetics/Politics – Contact Improvisation as Rigorous Change In a world of change and crisis, how do we position ourselves as dancers/people individually and collectively? How can we use contact improvisation as a practice to become powerful agents of change? How can the intense engagement with the physics of form invite us to be more personal, connected, poetic and political? How can we work generously with contact improvisation as a risky practice? In rigorous reflections on who we are, how we move, how we relate to each other and how we position ourselves in the group/world, we find ways to the courage to dance vulnerably, athletically and artfully. We develop nuanced and complex approaches to take up basic CI principles and practices, activate our reflexes and respond to emergent circumstances in the group. - What magic is possible when there is enough skill to take risks, for accountability, and to be caring? - We cultivate options to be aware of the implications. - What if we show up fully in dance, as if our lives depended on becoming the change we want to see? We work with 3-dimensionality, reflexes and physical survival skills, multi-layered methodologies involving artistic and somatic skills, embodied spoken word (poetics of movement), exploring our positioning and political activism within an artistic framework, consensus and setting/respecting boundaries, identity assessments and awareness of group dynamics/complexity. This workshop is for dancers with extensive CI experience who are looking at the history and future of CI in relation to the contemporary world.
