In Touch

Are you with me?

with Marielle Gerke



Marielle dance


This class is about the communication through touch in a CI-duet. We explore the principle of leading and following by giving directions into the soft tissues of our partner´s body. We spend some time on sensitizing our skin, the layers under the skin and their connections within the body to make them available for touch and impulses of a partner. How much or how little pressure is needed to make this fine way of communicating work? How can the point of contact stay alive when we share more weight? We will practice honest listening and working slowly. There will be solo explorations, partner exercises and time for dancing.

All levels welcome.
