Widening the Space

Spirals & Spherical Space

Contact Improvisation Workshops with Elske Seidel
Berlin Nov 5, 2016
Hamburg Oct 7+9, 2016

Both workshops will be about recognizing spirals in our movement, how they support us, how they can widen the space in our dancing - freeing us into three-dimensionality and open possibility. Spirals as a core prinicipal and phenomena of nature, are essential for our bodies in organization and movement.

As we observe nature we see the abundance of round shapes and the various manifestations of spirals. As we see water moving with gravity we learn.

In these workshops we will support each other through hands-on work to connect to the water inside, finding our liquid quality, learning from feeling. We will sense our bones floating inside our bodies, soften our joints, allowing them to sink. Through imagination and perception we will learn about responsiveness and connectivity within our body. We will listen to the weight of the water moving us, shifting through us.

As we dance I am interested in opening and exploring spherical space. Based on a center-to-center connection with our partner we can enjoy sharing continuous falling, allowing us to read direction as an invitation to spiral into flight.

For people with a solid base in Contact Improvisation.
