Rick Nodine & Simonetta Alessandri

Little dance, Big dance. Feldenkrais, Contact and Ensemble Improvisation

This workshop is an opportunity to use the somatic approach of the Feldenkrais Method as a way into CI.

We will use specific movement patterns from Feldenkrais to underpin Contact Improvisation principals, practicing exercises that range from the simple and structural to the more complex and acrobatic.

In the afternoons Duet dancing will expand into group improvisation with compositional awareness. Together we will create a space where trust and humor support vigorous dancing, practicing, processing, Jamming, watching, body working, resting and discussion.
