Contact Improvisation As Healing Art: Workshop & Performance with Stu Philips
CI Performance/Beginning Demo & Lesson Friday March 2; 6:30-8:30pm Workshop Saturday March 3 11-4pm
Workshop consists of methods of being, particularly with self, and extending those out when “interacting” with others, by deconstructing, undermining and bypassing easily our usual or known mental and physical patterns, and allowing our true/real raw emotional energy to transform our dance movement, as well as ourselves, through behaviorally articulating who we are in aligning with how we are, perfectly.
Stu will lead an introduction with performance and participatory elements for anyBODY on Friday evening. Saturday’s workshop will go into depth researching and practicing the healing potentials of the art of Contact Improvisation: dancing in physical (and other means of) contact with others.
Suggested donation: Friday evening 10-15 dollars, Saturday 50-60 dollars. Work exchange also available.
