CI Summer Intensive Ulli Wittemann

11 – 31 August 2024     Algarve, Portugal

Three weeks of focused training for dancers with a solid base in CI

We are very excited to invite you to the first edition of Ulli Wittemanns CI SUMMER INTENSIVE in Portugal. Here you have the chance to dive really deep into the form of Contact Improvisation, going for three weeks of ongoing practice and intense training with a very experienced teacher in a group of dedicated dancers.

We will feed our bodies with a lot of technical tools and tricks, engage our mind longing for a deeper understanding of what we are doing when we are dancing CI and inhabiting a human body. And yes, we will nourish our soul, craving for an environment of heart-open like-minded humans, where artistic expression is just as important as fresh air, healthy food and sunlight.

We will start with the floor, connecting with gravity and our breath and inviting a deep listening as a base of contact from body to body.
From Floor Work to Shoulder Lifts, engaging in discussions and watching videos, working extensively in the studio and use the nature as a landscape to immerse ourselves… losing ourselves for finding something new. Together.

Some of the themes and questions to be researched will be

What is this? / What are we doing when we practise/dance CI?
How can we use our body in the most efficient and smooth way in solo, duet, trio and group scenarios?
What is MY DANCE?
In which way is CI political? Is it…?
How do we deal with boundaries and consent, now in 2023?
The ME and the WE in our Dance
How does my social programming influence my dancing?
What do I enjoy?
What hinders me?
Is it “okay” to mix CI with other forms?
What are the ingredients for those “magic moments”?
