Somatics of Space II

In this workshop we will look at how space affects the relationship of the solo bodymind to the ensemble mind body through the lens of Ensemble Thinking.

Ensemble Thinking (ET) is a system of collaborative group performance practices. These compositional exercises refine the individual’s ability to perceive, initiate, and support collective action. ET’s conceptual nature allows for equality of access regardless of background, aesthetics, or physical capabilities. Ensemble Thinking was initially developed in 1994 by Lower Left founder Nina Martin. Andrew has been helping develop the material since 2001.

The principles of ET help the performer focus on different elements of the moment: facing, level, movement, number, stillness, timing, space, focus, line, shape, etc. Heightened awareness allows for greater facility and nuance in these elements as tools of creation and lenses of perception.

We will start with examining the possibilities within the solo body, transitioning to how the solo operates in relation to the group.

This workshop is for dancers, actors, musicians, who are interested in increasing their kinetic awareness of the ensemble and solo in performance.

facilitated by Lower Left artist Andrew Wass

Contact Training at K77

Tuesdays, February 4th – March 17th

7 sessions

During this course we begin with solo body techical material as points of departure into open dancing. We will then lab ideas, questions, pathways, etc. that arise during the open dancing.

This time is for people who wish to learn Contact Improvisation intensively over a longer period of time in a group and to experience quality and depth in the development of dance as well as in the encounter in dance through the grown trust.

We would like to assemble a group that is committed to continuity in order to train, learn and research together. This course is for those who are invested in Contact Improvisation and want to deepen their practice.
