W-05 / Contact Improvisation
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2017/18
An in-depth discovery of basic skills.
Arriving, breathing, reaching into the elastic realm of the body and out into space. Playing the forces of weight. Subtleties of timing. Exquisite dancing, from the compression of the tissue in, from the center out. Meeting, reading, and laughing. This workshop invites us to explore principles of Contact Improvisation, expanding movement options and deepening the perception in a playful relationship with the environment.
Christine Mauch studied with Nancy Stark Smith, Lisa Nelson and Kirstie Simson, and is a graduated Zen Shiatsu practitioner. Her teaching draws on her intense research and interest in the field of body awareness, (Contact) Improvisation, and formats for exchanging on and practicing dance.
