 “This training program is designed for people who want to find a deeper understanding of the technical side of this multilayered dance form - on a physical and also mental level. In a compact way we'll share the material that we have been developing in the last seven years in our Training Program in Berlin. Developmental movement patterns, as the foundation for human movement par excellence, are our anchor to teach and explore Contact technique in a systematic way. The center of the body, the spine and the elastic, three-dimensional fascia web are the core structures with which we will engage.
We want to give an experience how ones own movement as well as giving and taking weight in a CI duet can feel more efficient, rich and connected. Our goal is a center to center duet that enables a true three dimensionality. Lifts are a natural part of this. A very fine and clear communication is an essential part of our CI specific technique and ensures that we are present in a holistic way. The learning process will be supported by a constant group, where trust and a common understanding of what we do can grow. And there will be enough time to revisit and deepen some of the core exercises and concepts. Participants should be familiar with CI. A continuous movement practice in between the workshops is compulsory, so that the body has a chance to integrate the new material.”
