Improvisation w/ Physical Contact
Saturday 6th of May | 13:00 – 15:30
Physical improvisation meets Contact Improvisation. My experience in Contact Improvisation and Physical improvisation (influenced by studies in Action Theater, among others) are like brother and sister in the same family of Improvisation. My work encourages very physical encounters and also focuses on detailed bodily awareness and composition.
We will explore overlapping connections of theatrical, psycho-physical states while in physical contact: Leaning, rolling, out of balance, or even lifts. Creating poetic images in contact.
