Falling Caring Seeing
with Peter Pleyer
In this intensive we will combine a basic principle of contact improvisation, that of falling, with caring and the performativity principle of seeing.
Falling into each other, falling away from each other, falling body parts, falling down, falling up, falling together, falling and catching and in catching waking up the reflexes that will make our dances unpredictable and save.
Adding elements of caring, holding, developing trust through the commitment into the togetherness of the dance will enrich the emotional component of the form.
Seeing and being seen as we dance will open up the intimacy of the form to the world as it includes the eyes, the heart, the spine of the dancer to connect with the partner and the other dancers in the room.
