Elske Seidel teaching at ‘Berlin Festival for CI and Somatic Practises / 16.-20.5.2012)

Moving from Within

A Contact Improvisation class with Elske Seidel

In this class we will bring our awareness to the sensations within the body, exploring movement from within in relation to the earth, - finding softness, ease and strength in our journey meeting the earth and meeting other bodies.

We will discover the magic of moving together, sharing one common center of weight, finding support and trust in each other. We will play, meet and fly – in body and in mind – opening possibilities and understanding of movement choices.
