£130full/£100 Concession


Unimagiable~Flow~Resonance
This intensive traces the development of Contact Improvisation from before it was imaginable through the discovery of flow and onwards towards resonance. Each dancer's body is a map of this territory no matter when you joined the evolution. How do you experience your contribution to the form? Unimaginable: attending the sensations of falling and reflex, ranging from standing to moving with momentum both solo and with a partner. Flow: sustaining connection without losing the fresh taste of gravity and solo autonomy, discovering "the third thing". Resonance: Inner and outer spiralling, puzzles of the spine, expanding into space and using gravity's kind support to fly.
