Beyond the Vertical

Contact Improvisation Workshop
with Elske Seidel (Berlin/ Germany)

This workshop is an invitation to dive deep into the details and magic of Contact Improvisation. Discovering lightness, ease and flow in moving together. Listening through the skin, sharing one common center of weight, we sense gravity and its constant call to fall and rise. While moving together, each of our two points of reference offers us support and trust, the earth and the other body. This is a language un-bound to form, based on organizing our bodies efficiently and effortlessly in any moment. Opening to our senses we study the falling body, being ready and responding in each moment, practicing presence.

A central question in our research will be how to find ease and move freely in all directions with shared weight - into spherical space - moving beyond the vertical, upside down and into our backspace.
