MOVEMENTA Training Kassel
Contact Improvisation, Watermotion & Experiental Anatomy
with Marielle Gerke SUMMER 2021
In this series of five workshops we use elements inspired by Body-Mind-Centering and Axis Syllabus as well as exemplary pathways in order to investigate the somatic and technical aspects of Contact Improvisation on a deeper level. Contact Improvisation on land and in the water gives us the chance to meet ourselves, others and our inherent need for movement and touch and to follow it. A differentiated perception and an increased felt sense of the moving and resting body can be practiced with the form and becomes a useful tool. We train the mobility of our body and mind, our ability to tune into ourselves and others, our capacity to trust ourselves and those who want to collaborate with us and want to support us.
I am super happy to share images, information and sensations that build the base for my personal movement practice and understanding of the form. Along with somatic explorations, hand-on-work as well as visual and mental input there will be exemplary movement material – pathways – that I suggest to understand basic principles of Contact Improvisation and how they relate to the somatic explorations.
The five workshops build on each other and you can only book them together as a series. In all five workshops we will work on land as well as in the water. Verbal exchange is supporting our learning and group processes as well as the integration of the experienced. The workshop series is designed for 10-20 participants. A small enough group to feel safe, to stay focused and enjoy a creative learning atmosphere – to grow and develop the material together. Some previous experiences in Contact Improvisation or other related movement practices are needed.
At the moment the Corona regulations are only allowing 10 people dancing together plus those who are vaccinated or healed after being sick.
