Join us, on Salt Spring Island, Canada, for a week-long intensive training in Contact Improvisation Dance
with Anjelika Doniy (Russia) and Martin Keogh
December 29, 2018 – January 4, 2019
What do we need in place to trust this moment of the dance? Contact Improvisation requires a courageous willingness — but never so much as when we dance in the absence of will – those moments when we drop the reins and, nowhere bound, allow our animal to carry us.
We’ll research the questions:
• What is visible, predictable, teachable?
• What is hidden, unpredictable and unteachable?
• Can we see a jam as an art work in progress?
• How does a witness influence a dancer? And how does a dancer influence a witness?
We will work together six hours a day. Other activities will include jams, potlucks, and spontaneous surprises. We want to get to know you—your treasures, your idiosyncrasies, your distinctive pathways into Contact Improvisation. We will start with ourselves and return to ourselves through dance, skills, awareness, attention, silence.
Three days of investigation and dancing (Dec 29-30-31)
One day for rest, integration and laundry (Jan 1)
Three more days to deepen the material (Jan 2-3-4)
Because of the advanced nature of this workshop, this intensive is for those with a solid grasp of Contact fundamentals gathered through both classes and jam.
