Contact Improvisation

Kurs with Antoine Carle aka Tchivett, Jorge De Hoyos

Contact Improvisation is a real time collaborative dance expression based on physical contact and weight exchange. This class is designed to be accessible and exciting for beginner as well as seasoned dancers. The focus is set on improvisation as a creative process and dialogue based on body language. The aim of the practice is to bring the dancer to a greater awareness of their own embodied artistic personality and exercise it through instant composition and partnership. we’ll raise somatic consciousness and explore movement vocabulary and build it up to an open space of spontaneous collective dance creation. It is about being in the moment, surrendering to the intelligence of the body, connections, playfulness, through which we experience the fleeting and poetic magic of improvisation.

Antoine Carle aka Tchivett

Tchivett has been a performer, dance maker and improviser since 2011 and completed the Choreography Masters degree at HZT in 2018. In his performance and choreographic practice he works with fine qualities of relationship between bodies, spaces and audiences ; creating social situations and sensitive atmospheres and exploring at the border with visual arts and sculpture. As an interpreter, among others, he has danced for re-enactments by Hanna Halprin and Marina Abramovic, the choreographic pieces by Atsushi Takenouchi and Annabel Guérédrat, and in Berlin with Shannon Cooney, Jolika Südermann and Josep Caballero. He regularly teaches butoh, contact improvisation and somatic practice in workshops and classes. He also contributed to various dance research and performance collectives (Danses bizarres, CORPOL, Collective matters, etc.) with a focus on queer culture, feminist politics and self-organization.
