A 3-week residential workshop focused on contact improvisation and other related work: physical training, improvisation and composition scores, listening practice, jamming, watching, discussion, feedback, labs, contemplative practice, and performance studies. In solo, duet, trio, and group work; in and out of contact; in silence and with live music, we’ll move toward greater clarity and depth in our dancing and watching.
Please come prepared for intensive practice (and a bit of fun!). Intermediate level in CI required. Fill out online application form outlining your background and skill level in contact improvisation, dance, and improvisation, and your reasons for wanting to attend. All registrations must be approved by Nancy.
The workshop will meet Monday–Friday, 10am to 5:30/6pm in studios at Earthdance in Plainfield, MA, (a beautiful dance retreat center located 35 minutes west of Northampton, MA, in the Berkshire Mountains), and in town at an Aikido dojo. There will be some evening and weekend activities.
