Freiburg Contact Festival Germany 2018
Inner - Outer Environment- Principles of Contact Improvisation
In this classes co- taught by Marion ramirez and Jungwoong Kim we will focus on a site-specific approach, as a way to expand our connection with what is present in our inner and outer environment. We will focus on deepening our sensory awareness to prepare the body for responding to touch, sounds, found objects, dancers, and the particularities of each space. We will use contact improvisation principles such as ways of giving into or challenging gravity, resonating with the rhythms we perceive, playing with how to match or oppose the quality of movement while coming in and out of physical contact and dancer's shared weight. These practices will support ways to find the multiple layers of meaning, personal memory, questions and collective actions that emerge when we are fully present and in relationship with our environment.
