Contact Improvisation workshop 4th of December

photo and video credit: Agnieszka Laskus The basis for CI is touch. As for tango and aikido. Simple as that. Simple yet complicated… The point of contact is a bridge through which physical information is conveyed from one body to another. The quality of clarity with which we perceive the flow of information through that bridge (or bridges) is a very important factor, that can take a dance towards proverbial “heaven or hell”. And it is true for all three disciplines. Our proposition for this meeting is to bring qualities... Read The Rest →

Animal Radio launched

Book My Face is a new production of Animal Radio and it’s collaboration between two dancers/choreographers, a live musician and a Professor of Dance Movement Psychotherapy. Through our experiences in contemporary dance, physical theatre, authentic movement, capoeira, contact improvisation and release technique, we intend to create a unique fusion of these dance styles with live music and text. The overriding theme of the performance will be contradiction. Through expressive movement, atmospheric music and emotive text, we intend to create an atmosphere onstage that will vary between intimate/cosy and dynamic/oppressive.

Contact Improvisation Workshop

    CI Peaceful Dynamics Workshop Revisited Our body and minds need to be in tune with each other, in order to keep us safe and relaxed during dance. This can only happen with the help of breath, but as natural as it can be breath often is forgotten. Our proposition will help to resolve breathing issues which will then allow us to explore more advance technical scenarios. Always maintaining a conscious awareness of what is happening within our own kinesphere, and within our partners’ one as well, this understanding... Read The Rest →

CI Peaceful dynamics Workshop

  We would like to dive for a while into a world that is so obvious, we do not think about it often enough: the world of breathing. We’d like to listen in and investigate it from a body point of view. This will reveal that our body, when in-tune with breathing, constantly speaks to us and gives us clues for the movement. We can listen to our bodies, and when we do so our dancing slows down inside us and gives our bodies time to react. Breath will be... Read The Rest →
