Contact Dance Improvisation – Sensing Through Presence

This workshop is an explorative opportunity for both movers, and artists and people interested to explore with the body and senses. We will focus on both creating a ground for contact improvisation skills and qualities of sensing though somatic methods, and awaking into the present moment through heightening the senses.

A unique way to develop the physical principles of CI which are deep listening and finding a real state to be totally present in our senses.

We will look at very basic principles of CI, as “rolling point of contact”, support, use of momentum, in & out of contact, guided through blindfold, Moving without our vision, and being aware of our surroundings by working on our peripheral vision.

We will also have space for self-directed learning, talks & sharing, exploring questions and having discussions on different themes, boundaries, consents and bodywork.

After the three hour session, we will continue the jam into a live concert together at 6 30 pm,
You are welcome to join “The Concert – Sound In Silence” by ‘David Swarup’ the Hand Pan pioneer and ‘Erich Lehna’ with his guitar FX. Here is an invitation to enter the space, a continuous flow of Contact Jam with live music.

Facilitator Bio: Guru Suraj & Hari

Guru Suraj sees dance as not only every ones birth right,but as one of the greatest tools of awakening ones consciousness and awareness. It can be a mirror to look deeply into our self. All we have to do is stay and watch. I trust in intuition and spontaneity. Since I learnt this secret, dance has been a sheer joy and playfulness.

Hari is an improviser, facilitator, musician, explorer and student of movement. He has been exploring music and movement and how effective and deep they are as tools for understanding the self.

Hari is teaching Contact Improvisation and playing Music for Jams around the World. Hari’s teaching is influenced by the flow into the unknown and discovering what is new in the dance in every moment.
