5Day C.I. workshop with Mark Young, June30-July6.
This is a shorter version of the 12day workshop. Same material, faster pace. We won’t have the time to indulge in mornings of rolls like we do in the 12day but all the same material is covered, from rolling point of contact with a ball between partners to flying around the neck for those that wish. Exercises are modified for various experience levels. Some participants will be new to Contact Improv. Others are getting a refresher before participating in the ‘Residency for Experienced Dancers’ that begins the following week.
We will begin with Tai Chi exercises that inform our bodies of the spiral nature of movement. From these exercises we move to the floor to work with Spiral Rolls and Crescent rolls; to rolling with a partner. The goal of the work is to smooth out the transitions of our improvisation by spiralling with a partner. We learn safe and effortless lifting that is spontaneous and uncontrived.
In this video I am working with Mario Rivera. These are some of the exercises we will be working with.
