Contact improvisation (CI) is a dance technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for exploration through movement improvisation. The workshop offers an introduction to contact improvisation and a playful approach to the following themes: rolling point of contact, giving/receiving/sharing weight, leading and following, lifting and rolling. We start with a warm-up focussing on bodywork and body awareness that gives an introduction to touch and listening to the bodies and through body surfaces. Movement tasks in contact improvisation technique serve as tools for the exploration of the bodily communication between you and your partner. We finish with an open jam where you can play with the learned material and discover your own dance both alone and in physical contact with your partner.
Anna Thu Schmidt and Ingeborg Dugstad Sanders are Trondheim-based dance artists who have been working together since 2017. Both share a passion for dance improvisation and integrated dance and work together in Norway’s first integrated dance company Danselaboratoriet. Schmidt and Sanders have hosted several contact improvisation workshops and ImproJam’s in Trondheim and internationally.
