with Alejandro and guests
collection of awesome tutors, workshops, master classes and therapies,
including Skinner Releasing, Contact Improvisation, Embodied Massage,
Craniosacral therapy, BMC, and more.........
What is Contact Improvisation?
the immediacy of sensation, touch, and the subjective experience of
gravity, these workshops engage with the physicality of listening, to
self and other, using weight, force and momentum and flow. Physical
communication, deep listening, and a process of ‘letting go’ takes us
into ‘the unknown’ of what emerges in the dance in the present moment.
We negotiate relationship with self and each other building a sense of
tuning to space and group presence.
