This training offers the opportunity to gain skills for working with touch in dance, in contact with humans and non human surfaces, in Contact improvisation, Contemporary Technique and composition. I will be introducing a collection of listening, light and deep touch techniques that I have developed over the past 4 years through my work with Contact Improvisation, and Somatic practices including Body Mind Centering, Skinner Release Technique, & a PhD about how touch enables encounters with Otherness. We will embody the skin in a global sense and cultivate anatomical and whole body awareness through our work with the touch technqiues which we will apply in technical phrases, partnering and composition play. The training will cover themes of attunement, gravity, differentiating tone, fluidity, momentum, spirals, fascia and flight.
You may join the weekend modules separately or sign up for all 3 for the progressive journey.
