The Root of Lightness – Contact Improvisation for Heavy Times
WITH BRADLEY TEAL ELLIS
September 22-24, 2017
For intermediate/advanced dancers
“Gravity is the root of lightness; stillness, the ruler of movement.” Tao Te Ching Lao Tsu
Contact Improvisation offers the dancer an ecosystem, a complex thicket full of momentum, inertia, friction and gravity. Exploring this landscape with our tactile intelligence can be deeply satisfying and even sublime — but it can also leave us feeling lost and untethered. In this workshop we will utilize states of stillness and motion to nourish our dancing, establishing deep, supportive connections with ourselves and the dancing environment, and to find a greater sense of clarity, ease, and joy.
Note: Workshop participants must be experienced CI dancers, with facility and grounding in the fundamentals of the form.
Price: sliding scale $160-$180-$200 (work study available)
Registration: Space is limited!! Registration and $50 deposit due by September 15, 2017
