Description

CONDENSED SYSTEMATICS - 1-5 MAY 2013

This is a rare opportunity to spend a week exploring the fundamentals
of Contact Improvisation with two very well-known German teachers:
Joerg Hassman and Daniel Werner.

For several years now, they have been teaching a 6-month "Foundations
of CI" course together in Berlin and the material for this intensive
workshop will be a condensed version of that course.

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. The foundation of what we teach is
based on early developmental movement patterns drawn from Body Mind
Centering as well as specific bodywork to understand anatomically
efficient movement, with a focus on bones and joints in relation to
gravity. From there we develop efficient movement patterns for the
dance by offering pathways (exact movement sequences with a partner)
or explorative dance scores. We believe this brings clarity to the
dance, and increases the choices available to us. By focussing on the
technical foundations of CI, we also invite doors to open to the
emotional, psychological and philosophical aspects.

In thisfoundation training we work on developing a solid technical
basis. Some important elements of 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 and the three forms of touch in the point of contact -
roll, slide, or simple touch with no roll or slide. Our goal is a
centre to centre duet that enables a true three dimensionality. Lifts
are naturally a part of this experience.

PRACTICAL INFO:

TIME: 1st-5th of May 2013. We will begin on Wednesday afternoon and
finish on Sunday so that everybody will be able to get back to their
homes before the working week starts. The workshop itself will be 5
hours on a daily basis divided into morning and afternoon session. In
the evenings there will be jams, no time limited as the space will
belong to us at all times.

PLACE: The intensive will take place in the building of the primary
school in Łagiewniki, which is a peaceful and quiet district of Łódź,
located in the suburbs of the city. The school is situated by the
forest and in the forest there is a pond where you can swim. We will
have a playground and a fire-place at our disposal (last time the
bonfires were amazing). The playground is frisbee-, badminton- or
football-friendly and hopefully someone will hang a slack between the
trees so that we will be able to train our balance. Sleeping in the
classrooms (one can also sleep outdoors if the weather is fine).
Dancing in the spacious gym with an excellent wooden floor.
