Artistic Vision

This CI intensive training is focused on both building a solid ground of basic and advanced contact improvisation skills and develop understanding of underlying physical principles of CI. Our approach is dance & somatics, flavoured with some heart and soul.

Our background and experience in dance is build on understanding the moving body from inside out, creating and cultivating organic and economical ways to move and dance. We will build the common movement language from solo movement, diving into floor-work, developmental movement patterns, building tools to spiral up & down, understanding the function of our joints and skeleton – and how we can move efficient ways without waste effort. We will look at very basic principles of CI, as “rolling point of contact”, support, following & leading, falling, use of momentum, swing and suspension. Backspace, counterbalancing, in & out of contact – concepts of spine and center as leading forces of our movement, and all the 6 limbs being “in the service” of our core…

Our proposal

We will also have space for self-directed learning, labbing, writing, talks and sharings, exploring questions and having discussions on different themes. Various  improvisation scores and structures help us to integrate the technical material in our dance.

There are a limited amount of full and partial scholarships for indian nationals available. Please apply with a letter of motivation and a description of what kind of support you need.
