August 31 – September 3
Contact Improvisation Retreat
@ Gracewood studio / 4920 NE 55th / 97218
Wow, we share this profound practice of Contact Improvisation AND here are 3 days to explore in an urban haven, to make much more of a good thing!!
I want to gather to ask what else is possible for us as a community! Think Swap Meet meets Inquiry. Use our practice to deepen our collaborative potential for more connection and support for one another, on and off the dance floor!
I want to play with the use of video, scores, improvised sound for movement, dancing outside as much as inside, to explore and discover with you! What are you interested in? Come as you are. Bring it! All are welcome. Mutual well-being is a relationship endeavor. More of a good thing. You in?
possible research topics ~ AUTHENTICITY & PLAY
What is authentic? How do you know? If not authentic, then what? Why?
What is play? How do you know? If not play, then what? Why?
