In Touch

CI Performance laboratory


with Iiris Raipala & Vega


Iiris  Vega


In the laboratory we explore the unique quality of CI as a practice and as a form of performance. What kind of performative and esthetic choices arise from weight exchange and following the shared point of physical contact? How a dance performance can serve as a ritual and a shared collective experience, where the roles of a performer and a viewer can be renegotiated and mixed? We will start with guided sessions and exploring improvisation scores and noticing what sort of dances, situations and presence different scores evoke. We may become aware of choices and possibilities we engage with in improvisation and different ways we may engage in the dance for example trough exploring our perceptual awareness. Then we proceed into more independent exploration in small groups towards the end of the week.
