Workshop descriptions

Being centred

On this class we will study the sensation and state of mind and body which is useful in practise of contact improvisation.
The state is: What it is being centred physically, emotionally and energetically?
We will practice this through simple and easy partner practices to find out our own and shared centre of gravity and centre of spine line. What it is to be centred with your self, with your movement, with your partners and with the existing moment? We will guide this question into practise of dance, life, exploration and joyful improvisation!
The aim of class would be having an experience of being centred physically, emotionally and energetically well.

Workshop time: 21st 18:30-20:30

Petri Taipale has been working as an actor and contact improvisation teacher. He earns his living as a working man on construction site. Petri is practising Contact Improvisation since 2000. He has been teaching contact six years and last three once a week. And still he doesn’t know what CI actually is. That makes him moving on.

Non-contact contact

Non-contact contact – it is a contact with Yourself by knowing the limits of your physical body, invisible subtle Limits which we come across with Others, by which we feel separated and at the same time in community with environment, nature, people, things…all the world around us.
By knowing ourselves – by extending or constricting our limits, by opening or closing, by accepting or rejecting…we are making a contact as well – not with physical body (touch), but with your subtle body – more sensing and listening to our own body, emotional and spiritual experiences.
The more we know ourselves the easier, the deeper, more simple, more interesting…we can be in a contact with the Other.
So this process of dance motion for sensing – “I am I and you are You” – is in order to go into the contact so that we can create Something in common – beautiful and creative.
It is as a prelude to the Contact Improvisation.
During the workshop we will dance on our own sensing a common space, other people, we will improvise with things by using dance and movement therapy method.

Apporoach to contact improvisation from BMC view influence

Finding a good tuning for contact through breath, bones, and organs connections.
Choices of touch of different systems of the body as a play to contact dialog: skin-touch, bone-touch, muscle-touch.
Bones, breath and organs support for organic movement and partnering.
Levering bones, bones structure-bones support for leading, weight taking.
Joints connections as transfer of information through the partner body.

Small point of contact.

Working with directions out from our body by isolating them and making them precise we will get a deeper view of our body and its limits and possibilities according to what happens when we move and what directions our body parts take.
Working with some tools from Physic Theatre I want to make our own and others physical and impulsive directions in the dance more clear and visible.
Through this exercises I often have the experience of being a sphere and in that sphere-like state travelling throw space becomes different from being an upright human being.
