“Our senses, the essence of the dance” – Axis Syllabus into CI
Contact Improvisation emerged as a performative practice in the post-modern New York dance scene of the 1960s and has now become a dance of the people.
It is a form of improvisation invented spontaneously and together with the partner(s), in-formed by the sensory and motoric intra-actions and, in continuous trans-formation.
Contact Improvisation has been, since I discovered it with Claire Filmon in the early 2000, at the heart of my movement research together with the Axis Syllabus.
During this workshop, we will use the analytical power of the Axis Syllabus and its ability to track and reveal our movement potential to support our explorations of this social and jubilant contact-improvisation practice.
