Training Program Contact Improvisation in Berlin
in Cooperation with Tanzfabrik Berlin

 

7th BasicTraining Program (June 2013 - March 2014)

This Training focuses intensively on the principles of Contact Improvisation.  We (Daniel and Joerg) try to understand this unique dance form in a systematic way.  We believe this brings clarity to the dance, and increases the choices available to us. By focussing on the technical foundations of CI, we invite to also open the doors to the emotional, psychological and philosophical aspects which are a natural part of Contact Improvisation.
The foundation of what we teach is based on on early developmental movement patterns drawn from Body Mind Centering as well as specific partner body work to understand the anatomically efficient movement of the body, with a focus on bones and joints in relation to gravity. From there we take these priciples further to develop efficient movement patterns for the dance by offering pathways (exact movement sequences with a partner) or explorative dance scores.  


In the Basic Training we work on developing a solid technical basis -  „Following the point of contact with shared weight“ is the technical centre of our approach in Contact Improvisation.  Some important elements belonging to this approach are listening, knowledge of the necessary activity in leading and following, centre to centre connection, leaning with the acceptance of possibly falling off balance, und the three forms of touch in the point of contact: roll, slide, or simply touch (no roll or slide).  Our goal is a centre to centre duet that enables a true three dimensionalty.  Lifts are naturally a part of this experience.
Backspace, use of eyes, in & out of contact, counterbalance, momentum & slow motion, as well as the general search for increased choice in contact based dance are also elements of the Basic Training.
