SENSATIONall

In Contact Improvisation contact precedes improvisation.

Begin with the contact. Use the contact to feel sensation.

Sensation is the language of contact, that which informs the improvisation. 

Use the point of contact, as an object of meditation, to feel sensation. Note distractions and use the noticing to bring attention back to sensation. It is essential to become intimate with the dynamic relationship of sensation and facets of the mind.

 

See what happens by adding a blindfold.

Is sensation easier or harder to access when the often primary sense of sight is removed?

AND Check out The Inner Game books of Timothy Gallwey. They been most helpful in understanding some of the mind/body dynamic and in the devising of games to support my research in contact improvising.
