Back to Basics: Part 2

-------------------------------------------- ------------
A Contact Improvisation Workshop with Alicia
(Part 1, with Mara on the 8 February)
--------------------- -----------------------------------

Back to Basics is a workshop Series for all of those who would like to learn the basic techniques of contact improvisation. The focus will be to introduce you to this dance form and it's basic principles.

In Part 2 we will dive deeper into the foundations of CI. We will also introduce elements that make the dance more fun, fluid and dynamic!

-------------------------------------------------- ----
Topics we will explore:
----------------------------------------- -------------

Directions: understanding the body in space whilst being in a constant state of alert and disorientation.

Landscapes: understanding how different surfaces function as landscapes to dance with. Be it the floor, another body or bodies, your mind, imagination and thoughts as well as the space that holds the dancing bodies. All these are landscapes we can play with.

Weight giving & lifting: technique and preparation for weight lifting both dynamic and static.

Center awareness: using the center for fun lifts and learning to go with unpredictable changes, and more dynamic moves, while maintaining a connection, common understanding and trust with partner.

Pathways into Flow: through spiraling, point of contact and center to center finding predictable and unpredictable pathways alone and with your partner that allow you to be in a state of flow.

* The workshop will be held in English.

About Alicia
-------------------------------------------------- ----------

An interdisciplinary social anthropologist who focuses on dance and embodiment and the social dynamics that happen in a non-linear and non-verbal context. Dancing contact improvisation and organizing interdisciplinary, body, dance & movement related events has been one of her passions and she now combines her interest in dance, embodiment and anthropology whilst facilitating playful, meditative events (eg Experimental Jam) and workshops.

Alicia committed herself fully to contact improvisation back when she was living in London. This was the perfect place to be inspired and stimulated by an ongoing diversity of teachers and dancers. Her approach to contact is one of achieving the state of flow whilst dancing contact improvisation. For this technique is essential as much as maintaining a deep intuition.
