Chris Aiken & Angie Hauser
Contact Improvisation is a movement form that offers opportunities to experience heightened states of being – times when we feel fearless and alive. There are no recipes to create these moments, but training can lay the foundation for physical and emotional breakthroughs. In this workshop, the artists are interested in developing reflexes, coordination, and the capacity to continually recycle mental and physical energies back into the dancing. At the core is the commitment to staying with the modulation of tone and weight in the body, so that the touch remains alive. Aiken & Hauser bring a combined 35 years of experience practicing and teaching Contact Improvisation–this produces classes that teach the principles at the foundation of contact improvisation, and which share an ongoing oral history of the form. All levels welcome; please come with questions, energy and commitment to playful, imaginative dancing.
