Gabrielius Mackevičius (Vilnius, Lithuania) - Aikido touch

“I’ve been practicing Aikido aikikai for 10 years towards S. Seki direction and for a year in S. Endo style. Then i began Tai-chi an this year fell into CI.

I‘m interested in connections between people, how they develop in nonverbal contact cases. I believe that during contact people like to feel themselves and others, experience and explore emerging feelings. During minifestival I’d like to pilot some Aikido exercises which will let to feel more ourselves and others in CI.”

Agate Cukura (Grobina, Latvia) - site-specifics lab

“At the moment my main focus in movement is – to be grounded and losing ground afterwards. We will connect the ground through partner and will use different surfaces to find ourselves in the active motion. One grounded point for two, connection – disconnection.”

Agate is practicing contactimprovisation since 2010, when started to study dance at collage. Being taken over by contact improvisation she started to research it more and spread it in Latvia organizing little contactimprovisation festival „Contact at Grobina”. At the moment Agate is 4th course student at Latvian Academy of Culture, studying contemporary dance choreography, leading labs and teaching contactimprovisation in Liepaja.

Alexander Sanjay Breunlich (Berlin, Germany) - Curious Landscape

“In this lab we will be exploring the ‘moving landscape‘ of our partner and will try to find a unique dialogue with one another. In every new dance partner we can find a different way to communicate that helps us discover our own patterns and search for new interactions. We will uncover a playful dance, one awash in curiousity, one where we can also arrive at a point in which we find our own oneness within the interaction, a link within our differing landscapes of movement.”

While completing his masters in communication studies in the faculty philosophy at the University of Vienna, Alexander immersed himself in the discipline of yoga, receiving many years of teachings from several traditional Indian Yogis. In these teachings, he became fascinated with the many and varied possibilities of ways in which the human body perceives the world around itself.

This lead quite naturally to a deeper sense of connection to the heart of all living beings. His subsequent entry into the world of movement-reseach, contemporary dance and contact improvisation is therefore of no surprise. He has a deep interest in the play between the known and the unknown, to finding oneness amidst the differing expressions of human beings.
