Contact Improvisation workshop with Yaniv Mintzer
|1-2-3- July | Spazio Seme (Arezzo, Italy)
sticks and strings and heavy things
a new perspective into our body and our dance
This workshop will explore material i’ve been researching in the past 2-3 years, by which i am super inspired and curious.
I am looking for ways to have a better understanding of what is happening inside our bodies and the way it functions and communicates within.
Using objects is esspecially efficient in understading these questions. objects are objective, direct and honest, and because they are outside of our bodies, they give us a peek into our system and how it functions. they become temporarily part of our system, and this awakes much excitement and fresh challenges for the system.
As much as time allows, we will explore with sticks, strings, tissues and stones, and touch on some familiar CI material such as- spirals, leaning and axis points, weight transfer and communication, touch and preception, as well as imagination and intuitive reading of partner and space.
We will also have time to dance and explore some fresh ideas about technique and the state of a relaxed and dynamic body in the dance. Material is suitable and relevant to all levels of practice.
