Underneath the skin
11:00 - 12:30
In this workshop‘s contact improvisation exercises, we’ll work with the elasticity of our bodies‘ skin, or more precisely with that of the connective tissue underneath it. Directing our attention to this particularly delicious aspect, we’ll naturally and effortlessly conjur up deeply felt connections with others which may lead us into very expressive and sensual dances. This profound inter-connectedness will be palpable, because it is rooted in our actual physicality. And yet, we’ll be surprised that our connections with others can go that far underneath our skin!
