This workshop is a way to go together since the roots of the planet to the edge of the cosmos through this fabulous channel : the body! The first step will be based on the links with the environment, with the simplicity of conscious breathing. The next step is about our roots, our link to the floor, our anchor to the ground in order to intensify our stability, to strengthen our center (of mass). Then, the last step is linked with the space around (near and far) to facilitate the experience of lifts in Contact Improvisation. This dance workshop is an approach that is both holistic and technique, it is a journey proposed between earth and sky.

In this Playshop we will explore and enjoy the interaction of Organs, Fascia and deep abdomial muscles and invite the juicy power of the "center" to support the spine in its mobility and vitality. Playing with developmental movement patterns we help the body to re-connect to deep sources of life energy. Fascial elasticity and smotheness facilitate effortlessness and joy in movement and being.
On this wonderful somatic base we will play with so called pathways to learn and deepen CI movement material, and to experience and understand the underlying principles (the technical and systematic approach of this seminar is based on the Contact Improvisation Training Berlin - www.dancecontact.de ).

With different scores we will create spaces and atmospheres where playfulness, technique and improvisation can flow into a multidimensional experience of this wonderful dance form.

When loves goes through skin...
I want to take you on a sensual, relaxing journey in trios.
I will lead you through a MASSAGE in trios with cacao butter.
Four hands are sliding along your body, releasing paining points and let you relax and enjoy.
Kakaubutter melts on skin, reduces stress, and makes your skin as soft as the skin of a baby.
And the best:
we all smell like choclade to bite in

Come as trios or solo, bring a towel and a blanket and two Euros for your piece of biological cacao butter.

Doing Massage with Kakaubutter I follow my inner flow on the bas of the technics I learned.

 

Diving into Contact Improvisation as an art of moving together with one or more partners from moment to moment of presence and awareness. We`ll take time for some exercises to deepen the understanding of the basic principles of this wonderful dance form. How can the dance inform our awareness? And how can our whole being infrom the dance? An understanding of our perception allows us to connect with our life force as a source for happiness and lightness in the dance and our movement exploration. A supportive communication opens the potential for deep integration of the experience. Touching and being touched already creates some of the magic...

The Authentic Relating Games gives us a chance to experiencemeaningful connection with others. These games are fun, interactive, exploratory tools that help us relate to ourselves andthen share it with others. We are given the opportunity to open ourselves up and be vulnerable in the presence of others. We areencouraged to speak our truth and be our authentic selves.
We will put this practice into our contact dance and see how itshapes our experiencence of the dance.

OutdoorWorkshop
Please bring a blindfoald

In this workshop we will play with different Contact principles.
Centerwork, using gravity for momentum, following intuitiv movements, bodysoul wisdom, falling and rolling will free our „body landscape" to make choices which way I will continue.We will discover new ways of moving and being fresh in our dances… .
The possibility to dance outdoors with the sensitivity that surrounds us, the different texture of the ground, with the limitless space around, the wind and the sounds of nature guides us naturally to our moving sources of dances and reflect us our potential in contact-improvisation.

For me Contact Improvisation means being flexible, playful, smooth, light, effortless, meditative, truthful, gorgeous, touching, connecting deeply, juicy, surprising, being embodied… a part of the earth… a moving landscape in universe.

In this class we take a lot of time to explore the relation of our voice, sound and vibration and our body, nervoussystem and fascias. It will be a guided journey into the physical structures of our voice-system and the energetical structures of its sound and its influence onto the tone and state of our bodycells and the quality of its mouvement. We will enter a silent space of listening, sensing and exploring in awareness.

I first studied singing and worked as soprano and singing teacher. My interest in bodywork leaded me into contactimprovisation from where i also started to explore freely the connection of body and voice and voiceimprovisation. I could deepen my knowledge about voice , sound and its interaction with our body at the Lichtenberger Institut where i did a three years formation as well. My interest beside the pure joy of dancing and singing is also based in the healing aspects of voice, touch and mouvement which i combine in lomi-massage sessions integrating my voice. Finally I am mother of three almost grown up wonderful kids!

 

 

this is an offer to connect deeply with your center and your life power that arises from there. We start with an inner journey connecting, feeling and expressing by sound and mouvement to set free the flow of the energy. We deepen this process by a common bodywork and end up in a celebration   of our playful, happy, juicy center with dance and music!

We will focus on different ways of falling out of balance or keeping the balance together. Through several up building exercises of improvisation and technic with your partner or on your own we will find balance and also enjoy the state of being out of balance. We experiment and offer different possibilities of supporting the small falling of our partner. Dancing together, improvising and having fun together are also a goal of this afternoon.

We will practice flying, catching, landing, fluid acrobatics, deft maneuvers. For the acrobatics everyone will work at their own level and will learn best by building group safety and trust-- everyone will do something new.
Practical acrobatics hat you take directly to the jam and builds from floor as partner.

 

Scott Wells (USA)

In 1981 Scott Wells discovered the pleasure of contact improvisation shortly after becoming obsessed with the struggles of modern dance.  He stuck with both, received an MFA in dance from the University of Illinois (1991) and currently directs a company in San Francisco.  Wells has created works for skateboarders, for boxers and choreographed West Side Story for Sonoma State University.   Scott has twice received the Izzie (San Francisco’s most prestigious dance award) for Outstanding Choreography and was selected by Dance Magazine as “one of the 25 To Watch”.  Scott has toured to Europe for the last 20 years teaching and performing in festivals in Moscow, Barcelona, Budapest, Berlin, Vienna (Impulstanz), Zagreb, Bucharest and Ankara to name a few. Wells has been practicing Alexander Technique for twenty five years and BMC for fifteen. 


Scott’s style of contact is athletic and emphasizes freedom of movement, flying, fluid acrobatics (easy to advanced), safety, precision, pleasure and technique.  What students often like best in Scott's classes is the variance between the meditative, listening, slow and sensual dancing and the fun, playful, very physical dancing.  And students appreciate how the scary or advanced moves are safe, relaxed and made possible.

 

 

Playing, dancing, contacting in groups. Exploring togetherness together.   From contact party games to ensemble states and scores that drop you into group contact dancing.  I want to tap into our potential to connect beyond the duet (and the trio--More than Three because group experience is less known than the trio).

With the introduction of the Cranio Sacral System we get in contact with the movement and flow of the spinal fluid and the ‚puls of life‘.

After creating an open and receptive presence within us, we give space to the system of our partner. By diving into the fluid realm of the body and the divine potency we are connected to the body intelligence and the force of self healing and self regulation.
Through listening and staying present with an loving attitude we support each other  to more lightness and connectedness with oneself and others.

Invite the dance and let the dance invite you.
A dance journey from well-known movement patterns to surprise, "being liquid" and the moment ,in which the dance happens. The focus in this playshop ,is to pay attention to the body and to give it the space of experience, to move as it is possible without
having to direct it through the mind in one direction. The body impulses give you the input. Through listening and perceiving, the senses and reflexes open and
activate. You research for yourself how movement feels and set the standard, what your dance is. The solo is the base, from there it goes subtly in the contact,
energetic, delicate, to the game with weight, gravity, centrifugal force and momentum (duration of a movement, timing).

 

Taro Tikitiki (D)

From the yearning for spontaneous liveliness, it has attracted me to the music & dance improvisation.
Over the years I danced on many CI Jams and improv festivals & accompany them tonally.

I play on many instruments, such as Flutes, Guitar, Percussion, Frame Drum, Djembe, Digeridoo,
Jew's harp, mouthbow, monochord ... and sometimes I build myself an instrument. Vocal improvisation and the use of effects and loop device serve me as a toy.

Accompanying a CI Jam is for something other than performing a concert, as it is important to me to feel the dance field (dance for myself) and to listen, to let the "autopoetry" happen, how much is needed and when it is consistent with the sounds of the dancers to leave room or to accompany them.

The music, dance and movement improvisation is the common thread on which I playfully experience the existence, always fresh and amazed, it is a magical self-knowledge journey, which is not about to arrive somewhere, but the experience itself.

Since the year 2000, I can call myself an Integral Dance Director (CITA Munich Certificate), as a co-organizer of the Liquid Lumen Ritual, Rumble in the Jungle Dance & Music Improv Jam, the Munich ContacTango Festival and a member of the Soundmover Performance Group,I find time & space to dance and sound again & again...

 

 

The perception of moods and structures of the landscape, the fauna and flora and the elemental forces, as well as the natural ability to feel the sensory impressions in the body, to translate them in an improvised way in motion, so that the breath of nature, as a dance can be felt .
This is the playful field of research in this playshop.
You are invited to a dancing adventure, the direct experience of the environment through the sensations of the body.
Instruments such as slow motion, listening and principles of contact improvisation serve as inspiration for sensual movement, dancing and unbiased existence.
Since it is about improvisation, the critical, better-knowing & judgmental mind can take a back seat
and give way to an astonishing aliveness.
Experience for yourself how it feels.

A music & dance improv JAM

A ritual of self-awareness - perception + movement & sound improvisation


To get started with the jam, there is a warm-up ,of about 30 minutes to arrive, to feel, to listen and to follow the movement and creative impulses ...
With a soundsignal the jam stars , with a timeframe (of about 2h) in which the room is open, to make music, to dance, to wonder or to do nothing, etc. & with the invitation to get along without any verbal conversation during this time.
Everyone is jointly responsible, or co-designer / in this common space of experience.
In the end there is the possibility to exchange in circles about the experienced.
Brings instruments, curiosity and dancing pleasure.

From the yearning for spontaneous liveliness, it has attracted me to the music & dance improvisation.
Over the years I danced on many CI Jams and improv festivals & accompany them tonally.

I play on many instruments, such as Flutes, Guitar, Percussion, Frame Drum, Djembe, Digeridoo,
Jew's harp, mouthbow, monochord ... and sometimes I build myself an instrument. Vocal improvisation and the use of effects and loop device serve me as a toy.

Accompanying a CI Jam is for something other than performing a concert, as it is important to me to feel the dance field (dance for myself) and to listen, to let the "autopoetry" happen, how much is needed and when it is consistent with the sounds of the dancers to leave room or to accompany them.

The music, dance and movement improvisation is the common thread on which I playfully experience the existence, always fresh and amazed, it is a magical self-knowledge journey, which is not about to arrive somewhere, but the experience itself.

Since the year 2000, I can call myself an Integral Dance Director (CITA Munich Certificate), as a co-organizer of the Liquid Lumen Ritual, Rumble in the Jungle Dance & Music Improv Jam, the Munich ContacTango Festival and a member of the Soundmover Performance Group,I find time & space to dance and sound again & again...
