Nancy Stark Smith and Mike Vargas will be back in Casina in 2014!
ZOOM: Contact Improvisation in Detail and Perspective with Nancy Stark Smith (dance) and Mike Vargas (music)
In this workshop we will study essential skills and practices of contact improvisation (CI) and their relationship to a wider field of improvisation, composition, contemplation, and live music. We’ll deepen and refine our dancing in CI while expanding our awareness to include compositional details and conscious, varied relationships between what we hear and how we move.
Sessions will focus on physical training in CI, detailed listening practice, dancing within several improvisation structures, and discussion. Solo, in contact, in groups, in silence and with live music, we’ll study physical and energetic changes of state, natural composition, presence, and relationship.
In these ways, we’ll develop our ability to focus on and enjoy our dancing, listening, and improvising at various levels of detail and magnification. Simple, complex, simple.
Registration are open.
