RESPONSE-ABILITY: TECHNICAL PRACTICES THAT SUPPORT SOMATIC COMMUNICATION

This class prepares dancers to move and act relationally with spaces, places, and one another. Skills based, the body that acts-with others requires specific abilities. We will make tonal changes, become elastic in our physical attention, and flex perceptual size and shape. Although somatic, this is a highly physical class. Both technical and improvisational at one time, our training material draws from multiple forms including Contact Improvisation. Weight exchange is included, although not our primary focus. Please come prepared to move all surfaces in contact with the floor.
