DAL FELDENKRAIS ALLA CONTACT IMPROVISATION
Questo seminario è una meravigliosa opportunità di usare l’approccio somatico del metodo Feldenkrais come accesso alla Contact Improvvisation. Utilizzeremo sequenze di movimento specifiche del Feldenkrais per sostenere i principi della Contact Improvvisation. Praticheremo esercizi che vanno dai più semplici e strutturali ai più complessi e acrobatici. Seguiremo le variazioni dinamiche ed energetiche che attraverseranno le nostre sorprendenti danze.

FELDENKRAIS INTO CONTACT IMPROVVISATION
I will use a somatic approach (Feldenkrais) as a way into CI.
Creating a quiet space where we can listen to our own body and question how we organize movement, how to free ourselves from unhelpful patterns and discover new functional alternatives.
The awareness we founded during the Feldenkrais session help us to meet our partner and become more sophisticated in reading, understanding and communicating with them. We will also use specific movement patterns from Feldenkrais to underpin contact exercises.
We will learn tools for exploring different muscular tone and qualities of weight, supporting and lifting, moving through all levels from the floor to the air. We will practice exercises, which range from the simple and structural to the more complex and acrobatic. We will expand how we use our senses in dancing and follow changes of dynamic and energy into exiting, playful and surprising dances.
